“Plastified: An Ode”, a sea populated by plastic

Plastified: An Ode is the animated short film by Alice Aires that takes us to the depths of the seas and oceans where we encounter fantastic and mysterious creatures that have one thing in common, they are made of plastic.

Besides being Alice Aires’ thesis project, Plastified: An Ode wants to be a starting point for a wider reflection on the pollution of the seas and the amount of plastic produced by the man that ends up populating the seas.
Even in the farthest and darkest place, the one where no probe is able to reach, plastic has installed itself, becoming in fact the fauna of that environment.

For this project, Alice has collaborated with a marine biologist and a biochemical engineer and all the writings and sources used can be read on her site.
