 - Oct 17, 2006

Artist Miwa Koizumi brings life to recycled plastic bottles by transforming them into her own 'pets'. She describes, "I love the idea of using liquid containers to make water animals. Contained/containing, trash/not-trash, like the jelly-fish or anemone." To create her art, she uses heat guns, soldering irons and cutting utentsils.

More About Miwa Koizumi:
"My interests are varied, and the materials I use to express my ideas run the full gamut of contemporary artistic practice. My main themes are of memory and disappearance, which I express by using natural phenomenon to reveal simple facts about our everyday existence. I enjoy bringing your attention to those simple wonders which are easy to forget in a everyday life." - Miwa Koizumi
