Canadian artist Aurora Robson creatively upcycles various types of plastic waste into exotic technicolor sculptures while residing in New York. Robson's work gives off an ambient and symmetrical aesthetic while reminding viewers to make an effort to keep plastic waste out of the environment.

While plastic is useful to us in so many ways, it has become an enormous environmental issue. Because of the prolonged decaying time of plastic by-products, many nations are encouraging its citizens to take part in recycling programs. Robson's work is a perfect example of a way that plastic can be reused and repurposed into a new object. Robson plays with various colored plastic products to create beautifully transparent works of hanging art. The plastic bottles and containers are cut up and reshaped to create visually stimulating geometric shapes.
