New Factory / Upcycled tools for protest

New Factory
New Factory

New Factory using “plastic waste” in our everyday life to produce "a new type of tools for protest." A Protest gather “collective will" to criticize the problems that the system has and fix them. So, the people in a protest should deliver their messages strongly by using tools like pickets, banners, megaphones, instruments or etc… But I found that most tools were thrown away right after the protest. Meanwhile, I was also into the “Plastic problem," so I wanted to solve both of the problems in one and new way. *All the tools are made of “HDPE”(which is used for various household containers) and only "human energy" was used to produce them.
