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.
