Nature Weeping

info about Carla Mines work for "Curiouser...?"
It is our task to imprint this temporary, perishable earth into ourselves so deeply, so painfully and passionately that its essence can rise again, invisibly, inside us.’
Rainer Maria Rilke

The raw material used for the manufacture of plastic is produced in small pellets, these are called nurdles or mermaid’s tears. We have endangered our very existence by overproducing plastic, 300 million tons a year. Carla’s work aims to demonstrate the damaging effect of plastic and the dioxins that incinerating them produces.
