For World Environment Day 2018, Camel Assembly took the UN commission to create an art piece made of plastic that would otherwise end up in landfill, and formed Heirlooms: a structure that represents the amount of plastic that goes in to landfill every minute in Hong Kong. The ball is finished with a negative space black paint, giving it the appearance of a black hole–a metaphor for current perspectives on waste disposal.

The 400-kilogram plastic orb was unveiled in central Hong Kong as one of
12 large-scale plastic waste art installations erected for UN Environment’s World Environment Day celebrations across Asia and the Pacific on 5 June.
