Plastics appear to originate from nowhere. What could have traced their genealogy, the visual reminiscence of their material origin in nature, folds itself inside a desirable mask of “newness”, a necessary disguise for plastics to be consumed.
Plastics negotiate the boundary between nature and culture. We become both protected and entrapped by this impermeable material. By misusing ordinary plastic components, this thesis project challenges the intimate feelings of domesticity, constructed by myths of hygiene and comfort.
This workshop, “Intimate Plastics” introduces the culture of plastics, their mass production and mass consumption. We invite our participants to touch, feel and eventually build a physical structure as an intervention to the exhibition space using ready-made plastic parts.
