Proposed work as accepted for soundpedro 2021:
Plastics is a sound sculpture consisting of four used 2.5 gallon water jugs, 20 coin motors, and 20 6-volt battery packs. Together, they create a meditative, rhythmic beating that subtly shifts as the motors phase in and out every once in a while. Each of these water jug units will be placed outside along the walking path at the cultural center just far enough for each other that the last one is barely audible when the next comes into range.
