Created by Chaosteria, Lingxia Wang and Jianqiang Li, “Amber” is an installation that wants to make people think about the use of plastic.
“Amber” is a tragedy even though it looks beautiful. This sudden disaster, you don’t even have time to struggle. With the abuse and pollution of plastic products, you and I may all be wrapped in “Amber” in the future.
Plastic is caging us, we are its slaves even if it does not seem so.
Plastic waste, nowadays, pollutes most of the natural environment. Some studies estimate that in the oceans there are up to 150 tons of plastic.
Many of the wastes take between 100 and 1000 years to be disposed of, while for apparently more insubstantial objects, such as phone cards and bags, the time needed is at least 1000 years.
An unsustainable period of time that, as the three designers claim with their “Amber”, will lead us to be slaves of this material, making us its prisoners.
