A Plastic Life

Plastic is literally part and parcel of our modern lifestyle. Much of what we purchase comes packaged in plastic and ends up directly in the garbage. Because it is largely non-biodegradable, this plastic waste will be the legacy we leave for future generations. Saddened by this fact, Suyin Tjon A Hie wanted to highlight the situation. In A Plastic Life, she uses animation to tell the story of our lives through plastic carrier bags. After all, they accompany us on our daily comings and goings from the cradle to the grave and survive long after we have gone, creating an ongoing archaeological narrative in the world’s landfills.
