Abstract

To begin this project, I researched plastic heavily and began collecting my own plastic waste rather than throwing it away. I set up another plastic collection bin in one of my classrooms, and saved it from others. From this recovered trash, I constructed a chandelier in Vend-O-Land of the College of Design that would hang the plastic trash, lit up by small LEDs, in people's general space. Accompanying this installation were small booklets of information explaining the impacts of plastic & how people can help, promotional stickers, and a website link. On the website, even more information is provided and serves as a hub for documentation of the installation (photos, video, etc.).
