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!!
