Why People Can’t Fly

Why People Can’t Fly is a 10-meter-high mixed media sculpture of a man who tries to fly but is being held down by eight balloons filled with plastic debris. The artwork was created with help of volunteers from 150 countries, who sent in plastic trash to raise awareness of how plastic is polluting the planet. This work was shown at the Venice Biennale (Arsenale Nord) 2019, and the Burning Man festival, USA.
