The artist Branko mon's Earth Plastic View visualises the current volume of plastic worldwide approx. 7 billion tonnes, which in granule form extends over an area of some 14km. This special extent corresponds to the volume of the Matterhorn within the mountain massif.
Branko mon transcends the boundaries of traditional art.
The Earth Plastic View Art app developed for the project takes the experience of art into a new dimension. The real-world natural horizon and the digital horizon blend to form a controversial new entity. The various functions of the Earth Plastic View Art app render the magnitude of the volume of plastic at the Matterhorn tangible to the user.
The app provides a fun way of raising awareness of the issues involved and enables the scale of the global volume of plastic to be appreciated on a visual level through interactive functions. It offers a multidimensional art experience which adds a virtual level to the real-life experience of the Matterhorn.
The photo function allows anyone to become part of the art by photographing themselves with the superimposed lines. The EPV art filter aims to prompt users to spread the projects message globally. A realistic animation at the Matterhorn helps to impart a deeper understanding of the extent of the global volume of plastic. It also provides information about the art project, the artist and the environmental issues relating to plastic.
The app can also be used worldwide, thus propagating Branko mon's artistic message to create a new awareness on the plastic issue.
Discover the Earth Plastic View Art App with interactive functions:
