“Urban Solid Waste in Santo Domingo. Dominican Republic, February 2009.
What will happen if a giant rubbish wave invades the malecon? Probably, it will be impossible not to notice it, and probably everyone should do something to deal with it. This is the starting point of the project and the objective was to cover the malecon in its full extension with a wave formed with PET plastic previously recollected from Santo Domingo garbage dump.”
