Plastic Reflective – Interactive installation by Thijs Biersteker

London, September 21, 2017 – The interactive kinetic Plastic Reflectic (2016) installation won the Gold Lumen Prize 2017 in London. There are awards in different categories. The most important, the Lumen Prize Gold, went to Plastic Reflectic by Thijs Biersteker. This artwork was a collaboration with Front 404 and Better Future Factory, commissioned by De Persgroep Netherlands for the “Volkskrant Creative Press Challenge” and Plastic Soup Foundation. The installation is an interactive mirrored installation that brings the ‘plastic soup’ into our ocean alive. This aims to bring the fast-growing environmental issue to the public.
