Aurora Robson Makes Art From Recycled Plastic Bottles, Junk Mail

I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Aurora Robson's remarkable recycled plastic sculptures in situ at Designers & Agents earlier this month. Fashioned from discarded plastic bottles and powered by solar-powered LEDs, the flotsam-like tangles of hot pink, blue, and green give off a faint glow in the dark, like bioluminescent creatures of the deep.

But Robson doesn't restrict her imagination to hanging sculptures. Criss-crossing mediums with ease, Robson dabbles in ink, gouache, and oils, as well as junk-mail collage-work, with titles like "Sweetheart Suckerpunch," "A Community of Free Radicals," and, my personal favorite, "A Nail in the Coffin of Our Loneliness."
