. Yonghui Duan was inspired by the question of where food packaging is going. Most food packages are being made of plastic and end up in the ocean. Her collection of contemporary jewellery and tools combines both aesthetics and function but also aims at being thought-provoking. The pieces are interactive, wishing the audience to realise how serious the problem of plastic pollution really is. . Yonghui Duan
