Project: Personal Plastics

As we start to change our relationship to plastic, viewing it not as a convenient packaging material but as a rare and precious material, a new type of recycled plastic will be in demand.
The fragile plastics.
A plastic material in total opposition to the everyday plastic we use today, this material will be created from mixed plastics harvested in the oceans. Mixing polymers together creates an unstable and less durable plastic, a fragile type of plastic that can change in texture, surface and colour. It is unpredictable and unique – potentially the most valuable plastic of the future.
