Sentimental plastics is a site-specific urban screen project that was produced for the Wellington Urban Design Week IntensCity art project “INSite” in 2007. For the month long artistic residency, Morgan Barnard worked with local New Zealand designer Robert Appierdo to create an installation and live video performance about how plastic bags effect our lives. Interviews with residents about their use and emotional responses to plastic bags were collected and incorporated into a live cinema documentary. Workshops were conducted through out the month to show people how to turn plastic bags into a more durable and reusable material. Reusable shopping bags and video projection screens were produced during the workshops.
