Like most people, I have a blanket rule: I will only contemplate the short-sighted and wasteful nature of mass consumerism if you can also work dinosaurs into the equation somehow.
Luckily for me, Japanese artist Hiroshi Fuji has created ‘Jurassic Plastic’ – an immersive installation made from recycled and discarded plastic toys which reinvents them as truly impressive ‘Toysauras’ sculptures that dwell on landscapes also made from old toys.
The City of Sydney explains: “As a space where complex issues sit alongside simple joys, Fuji’s immersive installations are highly evocative: simultaneously dystopian, nostalgic and optimistic.”
There’s an interactive element to Jurassic Plastic, too, should you wish to join a one-hour makerspace workshop with Hiroshi Fuji. Adult-only, late night sessions exists too, if you want add a few bevvies to the experience.
It happens from January 6 – 28, Tuesdays to Sundays, 9am to 9pm.
