MICRODANZA BY ROBERTO TEDESCO
Turn the Tide on Plastic. This is the name of the racing boat that during the Volvo Ocean Race collected important data on the pollution of the ocean by microplastics, discovering that they are much more widespread than people think. A recent study by the University of Newcastle has calculated for the first time that the amount of plastic we ingest is equal to one credit card per week. There are seven plastic islands discovered so far in the world.
Fluctuating landfills, accumulations of all shapes and colours. The emergency is much more serious than is perceived by the masses.
Hence the idea of transforming chaos into an untouched bookshop, with neat rows of bottles, the aseptic white, suited to that state of trance in which we have immersed ourselves. An ornament instead of a horror. But we must collect ourselves. The reversal of the trend is proving indispensable.
