Linda Erceg: The Plastocene
The Plastocene transforms a range of recycled plastics into an immersive sculptural installation with large scale organic forms, sound design and kinetic elements. Referencing the growing impact of plastics in this new epoch of the Anthropocene, this work presents a thriving artificial ecosystem which mimics the processes and lifecycle of natural systems.
