Moon Clock

Recycled automotive waste plastic, 2018, 18"w x 18"h x 1"d

Humanity produces 300 million tons of plastic every year. It is ubiquitous on our planet, but few designers work with this material due to the high cost of tooling and the associated industrial machinery. By taking a hands-on approach, I explore ways in which this waste material can be reblended, remelted and reimagined into new objects. Moon Clock was made out of automotive waste plastic sourced in Michigan and melted in Detroit.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
