Plastic gets to the ocean through over 1000 rivers.
The piece consists of an assemblage from Plasticglomerates, lightbulb, toy wheel and drift plastics. Inspired by the Chinese characters written on a piece of drift plastic ("水汽泉") in English: Water, Gas, Spring. The puzzling words evoke a metaphor of an artificial spring spewing micro plastic waterfalls. We discovered much later it was part of a plastic crate for soft drinks manufactured in Macau during the 50s. Plastiglomerate is a new type of materials fused with organic matter and plastic. It resembles volcanic rock, except that it is plastic.
