Plastic packaging waste is a common side effect of consumerism. It lacks value beyond
its limited use. It takes just minutes to use but will survive indefinitely in the environment.
This collage series captures the bits and pieces of plastic artifacts leftover from human consumption. The word “artifact” has many meanings... “any object made by human beings;
a handmade object characteristic of an earlier time or cultural stage; any mass-produced, usually inexpensive object reflecting contemporary society.” Plastics represent the eternal artifacts of our current society. They never biodegrade – surviving for centuries in landfills, contaminating oceans and endangering species.
