BUILT TO LAST
project proposal & proof of concept
Built to Last
Built to Last
The future is plastic.
• A disposable/throwaway culture
• Planned obsolescence
• Our relationships with the objects around us
• The rise of a material, object-centric culture
The plastisphere
• The scale of marine pollution from plastic debris
• Microplastics: Plastic doesn’t decompose - it breaks
down into smaller and smaller pieces
• Pacific Ocean Garbage Vortex / The Five Gyres
Why it matters.
• Breakdown of plastic into hazardous materials
• Plastic acts as a “ship” carrying invasive species over
long distances
• Plastic enters the food chain and ends up on our
plates.
My questions
• What does it mean to live in a material culture,
an object-centric culture?
• Why do we cherish some physical objects
(“our most prized possessions”) and feel
perfectly fine throwing others away?
• Amnesia surrounding single-use plastics?

  • 8. The aims I want to challenge cultural notions of disposability and place its impacts into a global context. I want to encourage participants/viewers to examine their own relationships with the physical objects in their lives. I want them to think about the things they love - and the things they throw away.
  • 9. The project My project will be an archive of 3D images of my trash. I will collect all the plastic I throw away over a period of time and create an online archive of each item, using photogammetry to make 3D portraits of the objects. Using Unity, 360 video/photography, and audio, I will locate these piece of trash in different environments/ landscapes (the beach, the ocean, a banquet, a disposal heap).

  • 12. Gregg Segal “Segal decided to photograph family, friends, neighbors and anyone else willing posing with a week's worth of their accumulated trash. He instructed his photographic subjects to save everything—from banana peels to recyclables—and to bring it over to his house at the end of the week.”
  • 15. Getting there • Experts: 5Gyres, field researchers • Survey of peers
  • 17. When we try to pick out anything by itself we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything in the universe. - John Muir
