Bioplastics, the so-called greener plastic made partially from plant materials, actually melt at a lower temperature than tradititional plastics and clog up the recycling machinery. Thus, they disrupt the recyling "stream". We created a hanging sculpture representing a waterfall to draw attention to this polluting plastic and to question the green consumer.

This project was created in collaboration with Gaby Benitez, Jen Lunde, Corinne Santoro, Kevin Shenk and guidance from Bryant Holsenbeck and Bill Fick as part of a class at Duke University in 2013.
