Veiled relics

Wearable soft sculpture created from melted plastic bags

Historically across many cultures, veils were worn to shield from unseen evil spirits. Plastics derived from fossil fuels are a type of veiled evil. It is an incredible material that has propelled us forward, protected our bodies, allowed us to develop very fast. But we’ve misplaced it into places it should not go. We wear it on our bodies, it washes into our soils and oceans, as women we are expected to shove it into our bodies. There is nowhere we can escape the fossilized dead that we’ve raised from deep in the Earth. I sometimes wonder about our future, when the land of the living has reached its limits. Will we still be around to hang our plastic relics on the wall to remind us of this time in history?
