I then put the lungs into different types of plastic packaging, then used photoshop to create the scene. Jenny Gillanders

MEDIA: My concept is about the earth being covered in plastic and concrete and the piece is made from litter as well as little pebbles which are created by nature breaking through and taking back the land. I wanted to do a performance where I act as the earth and cover my self with the piece which is plastic and stones sewed together. Kristine Haritonova

Working collaboratively, we investigated our local surroundings and found that litter was a large issue with in our communities. We decided to research plastic pollution and it’s impact on ‘Our Habitat’. Our group explored the theme of ‘entrapment’ and interpreted it in various ways, incorporating plastic pollution as a key theme. This is a very important topic as consumerism is fuelling pollution and pollution is destroying our environment.

We came up with the final concept of a supermarket called ‘ENTRAP-MART’ and designed products/performances that highlighted issues of plastic pollution.
