POLYSCAPE by Yulia Pinkusevich



POLYSCAPE is a floating island made out of recycled polypropylene plastic. The installationis a tessellated pattern of pentagons. First the part is designed in CAD then CNC milled into an aluminum mold and injected with molten polyepropylene pellets. The injection molding process efficiently creates multiples and uses the same manufacturing process applied in industry. Using infrared sensors to feel the presence of people, POLYSCAPE undulates only if humans are present. Inviting people to explore and interact with the installation.

POLYSCAPE is a project that comments on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also known as the Pacific Trash Vortex. This floating island of ocean debris is primarily made of plastic and is estimated to be 100 million tons in mass and twice the size of Texas.
