Description

’Polarized portraits’ uses polarized filters to highlight pieces of disposable plastic where the beauty of the optical effects stands in contrast to the environmental consequences of plastic waste.

Every year our earth’s oceans ends up with 8 million metric tons of plastic. Polarized Portraits mimics the function of polarized light microscopy to create an imaginative x-ray of planet earth.

’Polarized Portraits’ started out as a collaboration between designer Kajsa Willner and material scientist Dmytro Orlov from Lunds University.

Willners’ research led to the creation of large-scale reconstructions of polarized light microscopy, revealing the inherent stress and birefringence in the disposable plastic under examination, creating colorful material portraits.
