Space Available presents Plastic People at ANSH46

Plastic People is a Space Available art project exploring the story of synthetic plastics. Part of the case study is an NFT series that will be presented via a series of global pop-ups, beginning at ANSH46 in Rotterdam on October 28. The collaboration consists of a pop-up exhibition and a tee.

Space Available is a creative platform and ecological design studio on a mission to create a circular future. Led by a global community of artists, designers, scientists, and environmentalists. Connecting the dots between nature, culture, and design. Space Availabe has its own museum in Bali, Indonesia which serves as a new world gallery and circular design center. The first exhibition there is Plastic People.

Spanning multiple physical- and digital-world elements such as NFTs, physical sculptures, Space Available product installations and a case study exhibit, Plastic People dives into the gifts and curses of plastic as a material over the decades in an effort to create awareness around modern waste culture and the impacts of plastic on human health.

Create real-world change

The first release of Plastic People comprises 8 1/1 non-generative NFT characters. Owners of these artworks will become part of the Space Available Web 3.0 community, enjoying access to members-only merchandise, special events and offers.
Each NFT is designed to create real-world change. So, as well as kickstarting funds for the SA recycling center, each digital artwork purchase also includes a one-of-a-kind Plastic People sculpture made from waste plastics collected in Indonesia and designed by Space Available Studio.

Space Available’s ‘Plastic People’ NFTs will be shared via a series of global pop-ups. Beginning at Ansh46 in Rotterdam on October 28, followed by Ansh46 Eindhoven on October 29 as part of Dutch Design Week. Locations in Tokyo and London will follow. A unique NFT will be released for each international location. A phase-two release is in the pipeline for 2023.

Space Available founder Daniel Mitchell says: “The plastic pollution crisis is universal. So are NFTs. We’ve chosen to raise funds via the digital realm to spread our message as widely as possible. Having our own workshop in Indonesia will help us recycle plastic in much greater volumes. Removing it from nature and creating products with purpose. We believe that our digital communications will lead to powerful changes in the natural world.”
