Artist Name: Bisma Iqbal
Title: "Where Does It Go?"
Medium: Embroidery on tulle, plastic straws, spoons, bags, cigarettes and face masks
Size/Dimension: 8" x 10"
Plastic straws, utensils, cups, face masks, empty bottles of hand sanitizer, and plastic gloves litter landfills and waterways. I started envisioning where these items end up, and for my exhibit work I will bring these visions — and also very real realities of waste —to the front by embroidering sea life on tulle, then placing it on my scanner, and displaying the art surrounded by commonly used plastic waste. My goal is to create sea life that has exposed waste in its stomach or sticking out of its body to show the harm that we are doing to the environment and all of its living organisms.
