The Plastic Hunter
For my graduate project I created a series of objects all under the theme of 'The Plastic Hunter'. I created a microplastic filtering whale shaped buoy named Wilbert, a plastic hunting kit and a children's picture book, all designed to help prevent and tackle plastic pollution.
Wilbert is not only a character within the book but he is also a large whale shaped buoy that filters the water for micro plastics, spouts water, makes whale noises and is powered by solar energy. I have created Wilbert to not only filter the water for plastics, but also simultaneously educate the public about the plastic pollution problem.
