Project details

Overview

Pollution in any shape or form is relevant in this fast-paced society we live in, we want to warn people the harms we are subconsciously doing to the environment and to the society, which is why we are bringing back the raw beauty of the earth and mankind with the focus of cardboards.
One of our pieces represents the vast beauty of nature and its innocence that is being eaten away by the greeds of this complex society; while the other represents devastating fierce and absolute power of the Industrial Revolution.
We didn't spend any money on the materials, but finding a more sustainable way of turning waste into art: cardboards from Packnsave, kitchen foils, gift wrappings, branches, plastic bags, yoghurt bottles, DVD, paints... Every design decision is made deliberately to reflect our theme, such as the branches in hair, Maori pattern makeup, lizard on the light, burned ashes on the purposely cut dress, tube top that looks like a mocking face... Beauty lies in every small detail.
