In eight months the average American uses 111 plastic bottles, 395 plastic bags, and 394 straws. I chose to visually commutate this information for my senior thesis. Content I researched and wrote about oceanic plastic waste is displayed in a book layout. Then to really gasp what each single-use plastic number looks like I constructed 3D sculptures of a human figure to scale.  Each sculpture was filled with the correlated number of plastic products. A laser cut infographic allowed users to interact with the exhibit and guess how much plastic was in each sculpture. Additionally, I designed and produced six stickers for viewers to take away from my exhibit.
