Thrown to the Wind by Wang Zhiyuan
Zhiyuan’s larger-than-life tornado of plastic waste, which stands 36-feet high, represents the heaps of trash that overwhelm his hometown and its surrounding environment. The gigantic trash tower really puts the overbearing toll of the waste problem into perspective. It seems cool and colorful at first, but Zhiyuan has an underlying message to evoke a discussion by garnering attention to the problem. The artist says, “I want my art to be about something bigger than me. If it wasn’t involved in society I would feel guilty.”
