Face Plastic

These are sculptures made of plastic trash and debris collected along the coast of Pico, a island which is part of the Azores archipelago, situated right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.



I’ve stayed in Pico island for a few months during the summer and on my way to my favorite swimming spot I’ve noticed the plastic trash between the volcanic rocks on the shoreline.
It startled me because I was able to quickly gather 2 bags of trash on a 10 minutes walk.
So I decided to do something about it.
I’ve kept gathering trash and after a few days the first plastic faces were staring at me in their almost childish look.

This is my way to make it visible, to give it a face. Because this is our plastic.
Mine and yours.
