Used plastic recycled into amazing sculptures and assemblages by Sayaka Ganz

Sayaka Ganz is a Japanese multifaceted artist from Yokohama, having also lived in Brazil and Hong Kong. She currently teaches design and drawing at Indiana and Purdue Universities, both in Indiana. One of her most recent and picturesque works has gained a lot of notoriety around the world: a series of sculptures made from used plastic utensils. Incredible sculptures inspired by moving animals, rich in color and movement.

When the viewers get up close to my sculpture, it becomes apparent that these animals are made of plastic kitchen items and other household objects. You might even have the same identical spoon or spatula in your kitchen drawer. Upon further inspection viewers may notice that many of the objects are stained or bent, because these are all second hand items bought from thrift stores and collected from friends and family. I call my style “3D Impressionism”. I use plastic objects like brush strokes in a painting by Van Gogh. The plastic items are my collaborators, and they inform the aesthetic decisions I make as well as educate me about environmental issues.
