Catch of the day! Is the site specific installation showing at the reDiscover Center. Since the beginning of January the installation has been growing, bit by bit, taking over the whole center.

115 Jelly fish like creatures made of recycled plastic bags are trapped in a plastic net falling from the sky.

Claudia Borgna’s Plastic Bag Art

Currently on view at reDiscover Center is a site-specific installation by Claudia Borgna. Borgna is a Santa Monica-based German-Italian artist focused on interactions of the “plastic” and natural worlds. She exhibits internationally and received fellowships in Europe, Canada, and the US, as well as numerous awards. Since 2015, Borgna has worked with reDiscover Center to organize art activities for children using recycled materials at area farmer’s markets, schools, and at reDiscover Center.

Borgna’s biomorphic plastic bag creations have taken over reDiscover Center! They are in every room of the front half of the building. Even the bathroom!
