Plastic pollution is a severe problem facing our environments and societies today. In order to inspire real change however, we need to shift the way people think about plastic and sustainability. We’ve learnt that audiences often know very little about the actual processes involved in recycling. The wider public also doesn’t yet understand the potential of 3d printing to create and recreate objects of simple or complex beauty.

In order to tackle these two challenges, we have been shooting what we refer to as a “Microcosm Video”. The idea is to showcase the process of recycling plastic to 3D printing materials in a visual and powerful manner.

Our goal is to introduce a wider audience to the mechanical processes that enable the rebirth of material from trash to objects of genuine value. You can see the result below!
