Temples of New Plastic

Temples of New Plastic was an eight sculpture installation built to reenact a cityscape I dreamt about. In the dream, I was told the buildings were made of an engineered plastic made from mushrooms, which grew from the ground, were inhabited as homes, then aged and decomposed to give life to the next buildings. This cradle-to-grave technology was admirable but I also recognized that the buildings had armored windows, which spoke of continuing civil unrest despite the advanced technology of this imagined community.
