Two Georgia artists address the problems and potential of plastic waste in the exhibition “Post-Consumed [1].” Harry DeLorme uses plastic waste recovered from the banks of the Savannah River to make “paintings” based on Google Maps [2]. His functional art objects include a lamp made from 120 cigarette lighters intercepted on their way into the Atlantic. Artist Rachel Green repurposes discarded plastic toys, tools and appliances into witty commentaries on gender, play and work.
