Plastiglomerates is a collection of music exploring the theme of plastic in life. “Plastiglomerate” is a recently coined term used to describe a new geological phenomenon – Plastics which have been cemented into organic rock through geological processes. These video scores extend this notion by creating AI plastiglomerates out of snack food brands, in a way to break both the AI algorithm and the plastic snacks.
