There are over a billion square kilometers of trash in the ocean and shores are filled with waste that we create everyday; the least we can do is recycle properly. For example, a greasy pizza box can contaminate a whole recycling batch. To help preserve our planet, it is essential to be properly informed on how and what to recycle.
"Recycling is Culture" is a collective project organized by Kenektid — a creative agency based in New York City and in Seoul — that tackles the issue of recycling in New York City. Creatives were asked to present an image of waste and to identify its recycling category by incorporating a recycling color code into their work. The recycling colors of blue, green, or gray must dominate each piece.
Because recycling is important to me and my work, I created seven pieces that were exhibited at the KENEKTID X Gallery (NYC).
