Plastic Beach / 2016
Plastic Beach is the third album by virtual band Gorillaz, about an island at the furthest point from any land, made entirely out of the garbage that has accumulated in the ocean. One character in the band spray paints the island pink and uses it as a new home after burning down their last one. These paintings are meditations on non-natural and accidental forces producing new environments. We need to learn to sunbathe on the beach we've created - so covered in plastic that it is functionally made of it.
Shown at SugarPill, February 2016.
