Title:
Plastic Leviathan

Author:
leviathan

Description:
100 tons of plastic junk is collected each day on the seashore of Bali. Visitors and residents here experience the consequesnces of plastic pollution directly in their everyday life in the recent years. We would like to represent the danger hidden in the plastic pollution what prays on the humanity. We would like to actualize an ancient myth in the context of plastic and sea. LEVIATHAN the huge sea monster is the methaphor for a powerful enemy in the Bible. We would create this symbolic mythical creature, the LEVIATHAN from the plastic waste washed up by the sea at the seashores of Bali. Or optionally on a public space in any European city. This will be a huge plastic waste sculpture. It's a communal artwork because the material is collected by the public. Everybody can participate by collecting their plastic waste. The plastic monster is becoming bigger and bigger by the increasing amount of plastic junk. On one hand we clean up the seashores, get rid of plastic waste in our household. On the other hand we create an artwork what can be presented on public spaces even in European cities and also in museum spaces. At the very end the LEVIATHAN should be destroyed as a symbolic act, how humanity destroys the monster by co-operative forces. The workflow of building and destroying should be developed during the residency program. We'll video document each steps of the process and make a documentary film by the end of the project. The artwork is the giant plastic waste sculpture but also the process of creating it collaborating with the public audience and then destroying the plastic enemy of humanity. Our plan is to create meme of this plastic Leviathan monster. It should become phantom of an urban legend what every child afraid of. Besides the plastic sculpture we plan to create short animation with this figure how it comes out of the sea and destroys our metropolises and nature similarly like in the Armaggedon story. Also we imagine a huge wall in a museum space covered by transparent plastic bottle pieces representing the water and the waves on the surface of the sea. The Leviathan would emerge in the middle of this surface made of the same material. The point is to spread this meme in any channel with the help of any medium. During the residency program we would develope and concretize the exact art products and social actions based on the plastic Leviathan monster meme.
