Plastic Fantastic wants to go to Figment on Governor's Island June 9-12, 2011 & we need your help to get there!
Plastic Fantastic is a community created geodesic dome made of over 6,000 post-consumer water bottles. It is an immersive environment for play. One may participate in the building of the dome, an art opening reception, a sunset dance party, a talk, a video shoot...
We are very excited about the 2011 iteration and honored to be part of Figment on Governor's Island, NYC with all the artists and celebratory revelers. Plastic Fantastic hibernates disassembled in a basement in West Philadelphia. Its mass easily fills a 14-foot truck. Figment is in New York. This will be expensive to move the project there and we need your help to make it happen!
Plastic Fantastic is made of 6,000 water bottles collected over 3 years and with over 70 people involved to bring it to life. Please help us take Plastic Fantastic to Figment, NYC 2011!!

2007-08 Plastic Fantastic developed while pursuing my MFA at Vermont College of Fine Art. Plastic Fantastic debuts as public art project on the lawn of the college during the August 2008 MFA thesis show.
2009 The project was completed in the summer of 2009 at PEX Summer Festival & Studio 34 Yoga | Healing | Arts.
2010 Plastic Fantastic had its first public outing at Philadelphia's inaugural Art in the Open along the Schuylkill River banks next to the Water Works behind the Art Museum
Over 6,000 have been collected from individuals, outdoor events, recycling bins, two of Penn's graduations and Blue Mountain Recycling Center.
