Building a Boat with Marine Plastic Trash

Alessia Andreotti
February 22nd 2014

Cleaning beaches and oceans from trash by transforming it in something useful and entitled to float on water.
A young man from Lamu, Kenya, collected tourists’ disused slippers and seaborne plastic bottles and threw them back to the ocean in the form of a boat.

Even if the ship doesn’t look seaworthy, it is a clear statement of the impact of plastic accumulation in marine environments. Peculiar object of the week.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
