Ainoa Burgos Gonzales: Plastic Era

Ainoa is a multidisciplinary artist who encompasses sculpture, photography, installation and performance within her creative work. This new project looks at the relationship between humans, plastic and the environment.


The photographic project Plastic Era stems from Ainoa’s research into the relationship between humans, non-compostable rubbish, and the earth. It examines the use of plastics in our everyday lives, particularly within agriculture and the effects of synthetic polymers in soil’s health. Additionally, this artistic project explores photography plasticity by mixing experimental and traditional darkroom techniques.

During the course of 2024; Ainoa plans to further develop her research, community engagement and artwork production towards a final exhibition and publication through four interconnected phases, one informing the next.

Sun Print/Cyanotypes Workshops

Join us for a hands-on workshop where you can learn how to create stunning cyanotype prints using the power of the sun!

After Litter Picking sessions in Worthing we will immerse ourselves on a journey of analysing plastic waste through Cyanotypes (Sun Printing). No previous experience needed!

Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic printing processes. To create their distinctive blue images this technique uses UV light or sun exposure with a combination of non-toxic chemicals and found objects.

We will be using this camera-less technique to analyse found plastics and their uses, densities, sizes and materials.

Everything you need is provided but you can bring your own fund plastics and materials such as printed packaging, fruit containers or even organic matter.
Please note that chemicals used are not toxic but may stain your clothes. Bring suitable clothes and/or apron.

These Events are Free!
