Plastic Army: Invasion The "Plastic Army" series is trying to address the issue of plastic waste in a playful and aesthetic manner. The cycles are telling metaphorically and in linear order of the incursion of the natural enemies, the conquest of the landscape, the mutation of their inhabitants, the complete fusion to the dissolution of all natural elements. The aesthetic depiction of these artificial installations thus serves as allegories of the deepest unaesthetic and unpleasant facts of catastrophic environmental pollution, using the example of plastic waste!
