The Matteotti fountain in the 16th Vienna district: It is located in the Sandleiten Residency, which was constructed in 1928. The installation was located in this fountain from 03 to 21-Jun-2016 as a part of the ‘SOHO in Ottakring 2016’ event..
The installation consisted of four large tarpaulins, which
showed the process how micro plastic finally winds up in the
human food chain - the floating PVC bottles indicate, how
the plastic gets into the global water bodies
Students of the Vienna School of Arts deploy PVC bottles into
the Matteotti fountain. The bottles were collected by them
and neighboring residents to demonstrate the problem
caused by plastic waste.
