The Tackle of the Tentacle

I think it's really important to think about the environment and make a difference where we can. Here a group of artists in Ljubljana, Slovenia made this giant monster from plastic bags and plastic cups to symbolise the spreading of consumerism and waste pollution.

The monster was made from 40,000 used plastic bags and 7,500 used plastic cups.

I like the way the tentacles stretch out around the city forcing people to notice it like the image of the lady with the pushchair.

Here is their monster profile:

"The monster itself has adjusted to the environment and therefore survived. It is supplanting us from the food chain. It just might succeed and it's all up to us. It is reproducing with inconceivable speed and knows no mercy. It feeds on individuals sloth and irresponsibility"
