Iran University of Science and Technology's artworks:
The Earth, our lonely planet, has suffered from the presence of plastics which are made from fossil fuels for more than a century.
Increasing production of thousands types of plastic products due to the human needs of plastic during a day, destructive and irreparable effects on the ecosystem and the health of human-life have emerged. So, an attempt was made to represent the importance of preventing this harmful phenomenon in a context of a combination of art and technology, again.
This prototype shows each type of plastics pollution with special color markers made of molten plastic, for example: blue, indicates plastic pollution in water sources such as the oceans; red, indicates plastic pollution in the earth’s atmosphere; white, shows the effects of this pollution on water consumption and plumbing.
The random creation of these color representations will eventually become abstract paintings of plastic contaminant turbulence that will subsequently be displayed for audience viewing.
