Using reclaimed plastic household objects as her materials, Sayaka Ganz' recent sculptures depict animals in motion. Ganz collects most of her working material from dustbins and charity shops, and the rest is donated by friends and family. She uses various forms of thrown away plastic, from cutlery to sunglasses and baskets, and sorts them into many different colour groups. Then she ties every piece of plastic to a wire armature, until she achieves the shape she first envisioned. Ganz’s works range from 18 inches to 8 feet long and the most complicated ones take up to a month to finish and can contain hundreds of pieces.
