Plastic Water: Interactive Art First Friday


Plastic Water: Interactive Art First Friday

Join, Experience, and Learn to Save Our Oceans from Plastic Poisoning

Experience our poisoned oceans. Currents in all the world’s oceans flow in gyres or circular patterns. Anything floating around can accumulate over time in these gyres.

Plastic Water
A weekend of Interactive Art & Community Involvement
Interactive Art First Friday
Friday October 5, 2018
The 418 Project

Plastic Water Interactive is part of First Friday Santa Cruz!
*OPTIONAL admission: bring 1 old t-shirt to be transformed!
Plastic Water Interactive is an art installation transforming The 418 Project into an underwater habitat composed of sculptures made from repurposed, commonly used and discarded plastic items that end up in the ocean.

The sculptures have aerial dance apparatus as skeletons--drifting aerial dancers perform as ailing sea creatures who navigate the “new normal” of our plasticized oceans.

Viewers can manipulate, ride on, write about and imagine the hazards of modern aquatic life.

Featuring live music by Zayante Creek All Stars Band!

- Swirl around in the Pacific Gyre of plastic water bottles.
- Sink from a Melting Glacier and then swim like a polar bear.
- Float inside The “Bayble," a giant bubble made of bay twigs and shrink wrap.
- Blow on the Diatom Mobile to make air currents and see the brownian motion of magnified unicellular creatures (created by 5th graders from Watsonville Charter School of the Arts).
- Feel the tepid surge of Extreme Storm Patterns.
- Swim with Lisa Agliano and her couture plastics fashion in The Human Mobile sculpture by Carry Garcia.
