A Polystyrene Landscape
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to photograph some artists working on a public art installation for Vancouver’s Robson Street. Our shoot took place out in Surrey at Mansonville Plastics, where extruded polystyrene foam goes to be recycled and reborn into new forms. Still working on the edits for these artist portraits – which I will share soon – but here’s an interesting scene from our location. Sure gave me pause for thought – not only about how much of this polystyrene is out there in the world, but the many uses for huge chunks of light, insulating, industrial material available.
