WHEN MECHANICAL STRESS IS APPLIED TO PLASTIC PRODUCTSDate: 2019-02-22
The result when mechanical stress is applied to plastic products is something like a picture I would want on my wall.
I saw this article by Qiu Yang from Vice Magazine and I just thought "what a stunning idea" and just like the idea, the imagery is just as stunning.
It's not too complicated the way Qiu has explained how this imagery is achieved; " Through continuous exposure to mechanical stress, a material will eventually reach its breaking point."
Qiu Yang used some out of the box thinking when wanting to address the massive plastic export in China and symbolises the biggest export commodity by rendering the material as a symbol of contemporary China – a high-pressure state, concealing signs of both social and economic stress.
