Jurassic Plastic - Dinosaur sculptures in beautiful landscapes made from discarded toys.
Jurassic Plastic is art for both kids and grown-ups – a fun exercise in creativity and nostalgia, while contemplating mass consumerism. Japanese artist Hiroshi Fuji recycles and reinvents unwanted plastic toys into colourful dinosaur sculptures and landscapes.
Make your own toy sculpture! The Makerspace is where ideas seeded in Jurassic Plastic can come to life through hands-on making. Inspired by the work of Hiroshi Fuji and limited only by their imagination, children will make their own fantastical creations from discarded and broken plastic toys. Workshops are facilitated by a team of Artist Educators, ready to help each child build their magnificent artwork.
Want to get more hands-on with Jurassic Plastic's toy world? Book a ticket to one of the workshops for 6–12-year-olds, or an Up Late session for the 18+ crowd.
