Plastic is everywhere. Just how omnipresent it has become animates Plastic Planet, the ambitious new exhibition created by multi media artist, Calder Kamin. Not only just a physical object that clutters roadsides and pollutes oceans, plastic has become incorporated into the bodies of all living things. Yet nature is resilient and we all adapt. At what price remains an important question Plastic Planet examines. Kamin creates a whimsical menagerie of colorful animals made of plastic bags. The animals are playfully rendered yet that they are literally made of plastic suggests a more ominous reality.
