The Wastescapes by Gayle Chong Kwan installation is made from a multitude of plastic milk containers. Joined together, these unlikely elements are used in an inventive and unexpected way, creating a landscape that mimics icicles found within caves.

Emerging from both the floor and ceiling, this milk bottle sculpture resembles stalactite and stalagmite forms. Built within a corridor, the Wastescapes by Gayle Chong Kwan installation mirrors a cave interior challenging human perception with its seemingly natural sculptural form.

Thanks to modernization lives, society is experiencing a series of growing threats affecting the environment. This imaginative art piece aims to encourage individuals to reconsider the way that they handle their everyday waste, urging them to create art from these unconventional materials.
