Pica Pica Collection
Trash Art Series
We produce an astonishing 3.6 million tonnes of municipal solid waste each day. By 2025, that’s projected to rise to 6.1 million metric tonnes per day. While it’s generally contained in highly developed countries, it’s generally out of control in the rest of the world, adversely affecting health and contaminating our air, landscape, freshwater and oceans. As we continue to waste more and more, we use more natural resources and increase pollution in our world which has became a huge and growing problem.
Pica Pica Collection is trying to address this issue by transforming trash into artworks, with a purpose of raising the awareness of the difficulties that today’s world is facing. By giving waste a different meaning and a new value the art series exposes topics that will eventually affect the future and well-being of humanity, ranging from trash overload to carbon dioxide pollution, climate change and general social problems.
