Just one look at her work, it suddenly feels like Christmas and my jaw is somewhere on the floor.
Dubbed as a "subtle yet determined environmental activist", Brooklyn based Canadian artist Aurora Robson has a knack for transforming plastic debris, excess packaging and junk mail into mind-boggling artwork. She developed a profound appreciation for nature at an early age while growing up in Maui, Hawaii. As an advocate for plastic pollution awareness, Robson is the founding artist of a fledgling international collective of artists, designers and architects who also work with plastic debris.
