Castaways unite to transform the landscape into a sprawling metropolis of luminescent plastics that weave throughout the surrounding trees, creating a prismatic environment.

The slew of flora has been meticulously spliced together by a collective of artists, creating an otherworldly environment that is industrial yet natural. Each of the man-made elements are infused with the history of a previous use and place, generating a creative renaissance that stirs significant introspection into the abundance of these castaway materials.

The delicate matrix of luminescence, manipulated plastic and electricity reinforce the flexibility, power, and preciousness of our own ecology.
