Plastic Objects

The 'Plastic Objects' reveal an unexpected approach of the plastic material. The process set up for this project consists in open moulds, in which epoxy resin is casted, layer after layer. Structure and thickness of the objects are formed by the succession of casts combined with the particular positions of the mould in space.

Project supported by Fonds kwadraat and Polyestershoppen
