Max Liboiron, plastic pollution activist and trash artist, tries to find beauty in garbage even as she advocates against the systems that create it. Liboiron, a PhD candidate at NYU, is writing a dissertation on the unique nature of plastic pollution—which, she notes, outnumbers plankton six to one in the Pacific Ocean. At the same time, she uses what could become pollution to create dioramas and interactive art.
