Moss Vastite

The abundance of plastic garbage chosen as inspiration allows for free experimentation, making each piece a collaboration between her will and that of the emerging object. Her work thus gains a very organic and lively nature, while being made mostly from materials that may well mean our demise. By choosing to work manually on a material synonymous with industrialized society and cheapness alike, she aims to challenge labels like ‘worth’ and ‘precious’. The Moss Vastite series not only encapsulates this, but by being made from microplastics occurring from working with said garbage, it stands as a sentiment for sharpening one’s view for the beauty as well as the hidden dangers of the ordinary.
