PET Project- 10.16.06
Miwa Koizumi’s PET Project. “I love the idea of using liquid containers to make water animals. Contained/containing, trash/non-trash, like the jellyfish or anemone: Living/non-living. And i wanted some pets…” PET (polyethelyene terephthalate) - San Pellegrino, Evian and Poland Spring plastic water bottles. Do these get to join the Water List?
Found Koizumi’s PET Project over at Spring Design & Art in Dumbo, brooklyn, which felt like my equivalent of a candy store. SO many designs i have obsessed about on NOTCOT were there to touch and drool over in real life! From the flat diamond acrylic/gold/cilver rings, to the gun shaped vases, to the jimmyjane “fuck design”’ vibrators, and the balloon lamps - i literally found myself spinning around in what certainly had a Museum Store kind of feel, only more Store with a Museum side to it… You can see my picture of her piece below.
