Interactive Award

Plastic Reflectic is an interactive installation that brings the plastic soup in our oceans alive.  

Designed to provoke a conscious response, Plastic Reflectic places the audience at the centre of the artwork and prompts you to reflect on the impact our plastic consumption is having on our oceans. A collaboration with The Plastic Soup Foundation, this interactive experience pushes the boundaries between art, science and our environmental responsibility to provoke a new perspective on a pressing issue.  

Hardware : 600 servo engines, 2 Ardruino, 27 ardruino uno, 3.7 KM of cable, motion capture sensors and kinect. 
Custom code and programming for the fluididity of the movement of the "plastic pixel grid" .
