The Plastic Bag Monster in Ljubljana, Slovenia | Current

See on Scoop.itOcean News

Ljubljana, Slovenia is one of the hidden gems of Europe, and now apparently it’s home for really interesting street art sculptures. The Plastic Bag Monster is a project by The Miha Artnak done in November 2010, where they “collected 40.000 used plastic bags and 7.500 used plastic cups from 12 kindergartens, 21 primary schools, 4 high schools and 3 faculties from the city of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and from more than 500 people from Ljubljana.”

They go on to write “Plastic Bag Monster from Kongresni trg spreads its plastic tentacles through the streets of Ljubljana. It symbolizes the spreading of the consumerism and waste segregation. The monster itself has adjusted to the environment and therefore survived. It is supplanting us from the food chain. It just might succeed and it’s all up to us. It is reproducing with inconceivable speed and knows no mercy. It feeds on individuals’ sloth and irresponsibility.”
