Unexpected Growth, AR installation by Tamiko Thiel and /p, 2018

 

The 6th floor terrace of the Whitney Museum has become covered with strange growths. Plastic refuse is growing into coral-like structures that thrive and wither depending on their exposure to the mediated human gaze. Is this our future, as plastic waste becomes more numerous than the fish in the sea?

Exhibition organized by Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of Digital Art, and Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, Melva Bucksbaum Associate Director for Conservation and Research, and Clémence White, curatorial assistant.
