Artist list

The industrial recycling process of hdpeplastics mixes all colours into a basic gray material. Jessica graded all kinds of plastic waste on colour and qualities, and in cooperation with industrial partners she produced samples of recycled materials in different colours and with varying tactile qualities and possibilities for further use. Each sample has its own distinct identity. Jessica processed the new materials into transparent foil, which she combined in layered objects of art that look like contemporary leaded light. A group of these pieces will be presented in Ra Gallery.
