Plastic Planet Unveiling Celebration

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Join us for the unveiling and celebration of Plastic Planet, a sculpture that brings together the elaborate site-specific artwork of installation artist Jean Shin, and the scientific expertise of pediatric infectious disease physician, Dr. Desiree LaBeaud, to highlight the global problem of plastic waste and to challenge us to reimagine our relationship with plastics. The final products of this collaboration are an art installation located in the lobby of the Biomedical Innovations Building at Stanford and in a public square in Kenya. The Stanford installation was imagined, designed, and constructed with students and faculty from various departments across the Stanford campus. The aim is to elicit interdisciplinary collaborations and conversations that will continue on long past the installation and spark action to build a more sustainable planetary future.

This residency is hosted by the LaBeaud Lab and H.E.R.I. - Kenya with funding from the Stanford Visiting Artist Fund in Honor of Roberta Bowman Denning.
