Future Dust' for Totally Thames 2017

by Maria Arceo

Illuminated by Dutch interactive light artist Tim Scheffer

 

We are delighted to reveal Maria Arceo's art installation 'Future Dust', a commission for Totally Thames.

Since September 2016, Maria Arceo has been collecting plastic from over 40 beaches along the tidal Thames, from Teddington up to the Sea. Beachcombing, handpicking, identifying, and colour-coding found plastic debris, Arceo has created a final art piece that aims to visualise the sheer scale of plastic litter that is found along the shores of the tidal river, while also allowing the viewer to relate with these individual objects when examined in close detail.

The installation will be touring across different locations in London and will be illuminated at night.

The light installation is designed by Dutch interactive light artist Tim Scheffer.
