    About The Work

    In order to demonstrate how art can be used to raise awareness of critical issues facing our community, I create various works of art using recycled and upcycled materials. My inspiration springs from seeing the alarming number of plastics and other materials we use in everyday life that are not readily recyclable or reusable. Our reliance on plastics and other packing is creating an enormous amount of trash that typically ends up in a landfill or as pollution contaminating our precious resources such as our beaches and waterways I am a creator pushing for a change in consciousness. “If we don’t experience the natural world as part of our external self, we will continue to create waste, practice harmful economics, and lead lifestyles which are not healthy for us or our planet.” The fused plastic banner “Earth can’t Vote” is a call for climate action through voting. The banner is both beautiful and melancholy, silently noting the link between overuse of plastic and declining life in the world’s oceans.–Alissa Alfonso
