Alicia Minnaard

NOESKWAM is the name of a garbage patch floating in the middle of the sea. Its residents have claimed the ‘island’ to create their own utopia on it. This new society shows the importance of playful elements in everyday life. Their only resource is the waste and plastic that washes ashore. They make everything out of found materials, from everyday objects to clothing. Everything is considered a precious material, as waste is their only resource and plastic lasts forever.” Inspired by the theory of the ‘Homo Ludens’ – the playing human – by Dutch cultural historian Johan Huizinga, Alicia Minnaard envisions us as a recycling species happily creating whatever it is we need from nothing but waste, most importantly plastics.
