Plastic Stone Tiles Germany

Material from post consumer plastic waste

This work is called "Plastic Stone Tiles – The Nature of Waste". These tiles consist of post-consumer plastic waste. Origin of the work were the questions, "What is waste?" and "Where is 'away'?". Waste is something subjective. What is considered waste in one place can be a resource under other conditions. Waste is unused material. And there is no such thing as 'away'. The majority of plastic waste ends up in the sea. This gave rise to the question of how plastic waste behaves in nature. Under natural influences, it forms plastiglomerate. A compound of plastic and natural components.
