Artist Sayaka Ganz creates beautiful animal sculptures from discarded plastic objects she finds in thrift stores. To fuel her art, Ganz collects plastic objects constantly, storing the objects in 30 color-sorted bins in her basement.
Building these sculptures helps me understand the situations that surround me. It reminds me that even if there is a conflict right now, there is also a solution in which all the pieces can coexist peacefully. Though there are wide gaps in some areas and small holes in others, when seen from the distance there is great beauty and harmony in our community. Through my sculptures I transmit a message of hope.
