Aurora Robson’s artistic practice is about shifting trajectories as she transforms waste into aesthetic objects of beauty. She uses her art to inspire others to rethink and reinvent plastic waste in ways that promote creative stewardship of our global waterways. Her welded plastic sculptures raise awareness of our enormous plastic waste problem and the detrimental effects on our planet. Delicately carved and sculpted plastic sculptures resembling sea creatures help us recognize the monumental effects of plastic waste on distant ecosystems and provide strategies towards intercepting the waste stream and upcycling discarded plastics into new objects.
Aurora Robson is a sculptural artist whose work was included in The Tipping Point exhibit at RoCA. She explores ecological issues and the relationship between nature and humanity. Her lively and intricate sculptures are constructed from plastic debris. Robson is an eco-activist and founder of Project Vortex, an international organization of artists, architects, and designers working together to reduce the amount of plastic debris littering our oceans and shorelines. Robson's work has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, Art in America, WIRED, Art & Antiques, the cover of Green Building + Design, and other publications. She is a recipient of the Pollock Krasner Grant, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Sculpture, a TED/Lincoln Re-Imagine Prize, and a National Endowment for the Arts Art Work Grant.
