10″ x 8″, 2017. One-of-a-kind book.
A few pounds worth of plastic bags, used plastic films, used plastic packaging, and fishing line. Permanent marker text and drawings. Materials were all waste materials from my own artistic and research practices, collected over the period of several months; the text was composed of my own responses and investigations from reading through research papers focused on microplastics and their presence in Lake Michigan.
