Aurora Robson
The Great Indoors
18 September – 26 October 2008


Aurora Robson is an American artist that creates large scale installations using recycled plastic.  Figure 159 ‘Jetsam’ is made from plastic debris accompanied by other materials such as tinted polyacrylic and mica powder. Figure 161 ‘Accumulus’ 2010 was installed in a building in NY which was made utilising 5000 plastic bin bags that the building throws away. Although these pieces are too complex for me to adapt on in my own work, they are very intriguing with the use of scale whilst also looking at the diversity throughout each installation Robson creates.
