Project Room
Oil Elastic–World of Plastic
A Degeneration-Regeneration Installation
By Rick Frausto
Questioning the integrity of our current energy policies and the ethics of today’s unsustainable American way of life, Oil Elastic–World of Plastic awakens the dormant consciousness of an American consumed with consumption, confronting an impending global calamity escapable through revolutionary activism or worse: by fate of extraterrestrial divinity. Artist Rick Frausto creates a tribute installation dedicated to the research of activist Charles Moore, founder of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation.
Guest Curator: Karen Crews
