WHERE IS PLASTIC?
If you sit on your couch at home, it is there.
If you turn over a rock on a beach, it is there.
If you wait for the light to turn green, it is there.
We invite you, the listener, to look out the window and observe it being there. Framed by two voices, this site-specific soundscape delicately notices, with the observer, the presence of plastic on a street, in a city. (Version One of Mould Into Shape was presented as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival 2019 on the DART, check dublin.sciencegallery.com/events for repeat performances.)
