Blister Pact: A Large-Scale Sculptural Installation Made from Thousands of Plastic Packages

Ian Trask’s newest installation, "Blister Pact" opening this March 7th at the Invisible Dog Art Centre is an examination of the materialistic culture in which we live. Thousands of plastic packages were sourced from consumers and producers in the artist’s community and woven together into a a translucent structure inspired by the architecture and glyphic writing systems of ancient burial memorials. “What I really wanted to show was a huge spectrum of shapes, because part of my goal was to demonstrate the overwhelming use of this type of packaging across a range of commercial industries.” Trask told Hyperallergic.
