“My work is about how we/people can play and benefit from the forces and materials around us. From the belief that everything we need is just in our surroundings, my work aims to magnify the creative potential of local resources through within-reach and transparent technologies. Therefore the object is no longer a consumption-driven artefact but a genuine tool for creation and empowerment.” – Micaella Pedros

Micaella Pedros:

‘Joining Bottles’ is an experimental joining technique using plastic bottles. Plastic bottles hide an incredible property : under heat, they shrink. Therefore, they can join things together and create functional structures.

Scavenged from different parts of London, all the materials used are revealing their availability, their identity and their creative potential.
