Day 177: June 26
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Exploration
The Labyrinth of plastic waste is designed by Spanish activists who want to bring attention to our cultivated consumption of plastic. The installation of art and statement took four days to fashion into a labyrinth of light using 26 meters of plastic waste using over 6,000 bottles encased in plastic bags to illustrate their message. The installation has been recreated in Katowice, Poland, Buenos Aires and has been a part of public portrayal in museum spaces and in Madrid. The artists make many statements about our plastic addiction in an artistic way. By day the clear plastic makes an impressive statement hanging from a metal frame structure, though at night it becomes magical when illumination is added.
“We are trying to prove, in a poetic way, the amount of waste plastic that is consumed every day. In addition to focus on the big business of bottling water, which leads to very serious problems in developing countries , whose citizens have seen their aquifers with impunity be privatized for the exclusive enrichment of big business and the ruling classes, without scruples, ” Luzinterruptus
The great Leonardo Da Vinci invented plastic and like many of the inventions he created, not all had a favorable outcome for society’s growth and continuation. Like our purpose in exploring we can find the great invention and intentions, though the reflective walk that brings us back to our starting point offers a new beginning in seeing the whole picture more clearly.
On this 177th day…
Explore the ideas that you have seen the other side of in your walks to equate the value of moving into new beginnings.
