Creative Insights: NGV Triennial at Mercedes Me

In conversation with Simone LeAmon and designer Brodie Neill.

By 2025, scientists estimate there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish.

Born and raised in Tasmania, where ocean plastic pollution is now ubiquitous along the coastline, Brodie Neill believes that the solution must be to consider ocean plastic as a resource, not waste.

Collaborating with an international network of scientists, researchers, beachcombers, engineers, artisans and manufacturers, Neill collects and reconstitutes small fragments of plastic washed up on the shores of Tasmania and around the globe to produce a terrazzo-like composite for his work, including Gyro, table 2016, a feature of the NGV Triennial.
