Making Art to spread Awareness

Three Taiwan Students attending The National Taiwan University of Arts, have recently created Polyester resin Popsicles to spread awareness for Taiwan’s pollution they face today. Taken from 100 locations, dirty water samples were taken and have been created into “flavors”, with a flashy packaging meant to contrast the filth found inside. The project was nominated for the Young Pin Design Award.

While an exact figure is challenging to nail down, there may be over 150 million tons of plastic in marine waters today, according to a report released last year by the World Economic Forum and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. At this rate, there will be more plastic than fish (by weight) in the ocean by 2050.

This art project is done with incredible care, and attention to detail. For more information and images, click the link below.
