Art Description

Sculpture: Paint, Paper, Plastic and Environmental on Canvas, Cardboard, Glass, Paper and Plastic.

I was stuck on the idea of making this sculpture last month when I almost discarded my 4 month old headset+mic. Although the cheap accessory was good, still usable with minor issues, I wanted to go for new one.

We buy plastics and discard them. We buy something else wrapped in plastic and then dispose the packing material. This sculpture of a shell headed alien is a reflection of materials which are less biodegradable and take years to be broken down in natural ways.

These alien materials are spreading their web everywhere with lands filling with them.

The materials that are nature friendly are the ones that closely follow one basic rule, i.e. easy degradation. With each step we create something unusually durable, we force nature to bare the costs of time.

This alien material menace is manifold in developing countries and nature filthy states with no proper regulation or system for protection.

Coming back to the sculpture, it was created from paper, cardboard pipe, bottle, hand made cotton threads, pieces of canvas, pieces metal sheets, stapler pins, sea shells, a headset, WIFI modem both in working condition and surface painted mixed with glue and acrylic medium.
