In a post-plastic future, where the only place to extract petrol-based plastics will be from nature in a new hybrid form, plastics will regain a new value, far beyond the way we see it in our current time.

Metamorphism is an ongoing research and design project by Shahar Livne that speculates on a future in which plastic waste further permeates Earth’s surface and it’s natural systems; how it could one day blend with natural matter to become an entirely new extractable resource.  

Lithoplast Naturally Occurring Plastic Waste

Environmental changes, deforestation and the spread of man-made pollutants are inevitably threatening the existence of natural materials and transforming nature as we know it. At the same time, new natural materials which are the result of environmental contamination are emerging, and man-made materials such as plastic are proliferating in our surroundings.

Lithoplast Naturally Occurring Plastic Waste

Lithoplast is the result of thousands of years of natural metabolism and its encounter with the “golden spike” of humanity, plastics. Lithoplast is a new speculative raw material that can be processed in a similar way to clay and is acting as an ultimate symbol of the transformation of matter and the inevitable shifts between nature and culture.
