OceanPlastics-001

Ocean Plastics

This RSAF1 (https://langara.ca/about-langara/applied-research/RSAF/ ) funded project is the first phase in the fabrication of a plastic recycling/repurposing ecosystem based on the work of Dave Hakkens and Precious Plastics .

Our Plastics Shredder will, in its second phase, be coupled with a Langara built (Makerspace!) plastic injection moulding machine. We will be exploring these new tools,technologies and ideas as a means to reimagine plastic waste.

These proof of concept tools are aimed at building a mobile, self-replicating toolkit that can be used to begin addressing the issue of marine plastic pollution, micro economics, and design thinking in remote locations on the BC Coast. Stay Tuned – Get involved!

The Prud'homme Library

Make Believe: The Secret Library of M. Prud’homme, A Rare Collection of Fakes

The exhibition Make Believe: The Secret Library of M. Prud’homme, A Rare Collection of Fakes houses fakes and forgeries from the recently-discovered Prud’homme Library, ranging from rare vases to space exploration logs, false obituaries to oil paintings. The project is multidisciplinary, engaging public participation through hands-on interactive stations, 3D printed objects, literary readings, creative workshops, and a digital library. Historical documents are mixed with contemporary works by Canadian writers and artists, encouraging tour-goers to ask questions about authorship, history, story, and make-believe. The exhibit is travelling to Halifax, Toronto, Saskatoon, and Vancouver from March 2019 to August 2019. More details can be found at: www.prudhommelibrary.ca  and on Instagram @prudhommelibrary
