LITTERSET: playing & building with plastic soup
Elza Zijlstra of TrashWorks makes art out of plastic waste she finds on beaches, streets and riverbanks around the world. In close cooperation with Tom Reijnders she has now developed the ‘LITTERSET’: a play-box filled with hand-picked plastic waste. Both in her art and in the ‘LITTERSET‘, the waste is not changed in any way, but used as found. There is also a book with creative ideas in the play-box.
Owners of the box are encouraged to go outside and look for pieces of plastic waste. This is how the ‘LITTERSET’ stimulates the imagination and being outside. It shows that it is not necessary to buy new plastic in order to have fun and create.
