Screenprint, 2006


In 2006, the City of Calgary did not have a household recycling program for plastics yet. I felt frustrated in my attempts to recycle PVC materials and decided to create Plastic Fungus, an installation with my own agents of decomposition, constructed from empty yoghurt containers. I photographed some elements of this installation and used them for this series of screenprints, placing the photographed plastic elements against a hand-drawn backdrop of fungi.
