The Last Straw

This peice is a little bit 80s Madonna retro mixed with a stark black and white storm trooper vibe

The Last Straw Process

This look

This peice was inspired by the a news report that straws are in the top 10 list of most discarded and most environmentally damaging plastics. I wanted to bring awareness to my audience the distructiveness this simple object has on our environment. I collected coffee stir straws at work from about 6 months to make this look. I used vinyl from billboard signage and I used mesh produce bags that I spray painted white and black.
