INJECTION MOLD PLASTIC WASTE

INJECTION MOLD PLASTIC WASTE

96.00

Own a piece of industrial waste*. This piece of plastic can sit on your table or a shelf to remind you of the horrors of the anthropocene. Soft gradients from black to gray in this piece result from different percentages of purity of plastic. The black is pure ABS plastic and the lighter gray is mixed plastic with injection mold purge pellets used to clean machines between production runs and changes in color or material. It almost looks like a fossil, which is funny, because ABS is made from petroleum, the Latin word for "oil of rock," it's crude oil and that is a fossil fuel, so this piece of plastic really is a fossil, a fossil from the nightmare of the anthropocene. Dark.
