The population is sinking into its own trash. Seems that our consumption has no limit. Sad thing is that society starts to think about the problem when it knocks on the door. Unfortunately, since the most of people do not see plastic and rubber tires in their backyards, continue careless plastic consumption without thinking about alternatives and recycling strategies.
Meanwhile our oceans are full of plastic. Water birds, animals and fishes have microplastic inside them. We are eating plastic. Soon we become PLASTIC!
PlasticLand is a video sculpture, which contains four videos from artificial images, which were made by training an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm on the data sets of real images. AI neural network generates speculative images of the anthropocene, images that have never seen before.
The first video is made from images of landfills, the second is from trash on top of the water, the first is from plastic under the water, and the last is from plastiglomerates. Plastiglomerate is a new fossil that contains plastic.
The aim is to let machine to imagine what our surroundings will look like soon if society would not change their lifestyle. The artwork calls to stop and think what we are about to lose. On the other hand, the art project also proposes to use technology for coming up with solutions.
