Artist Creates Self-Portrait Using Discarded, Non-Recyclable Plastic Caps

Chicago-based artist Mary Ellen Croteau has created a beautiful portrait of herself using discarded non-recycled plastic caps.

The art piece is made from petroleum which does not decompose and would be costly for recycling—it serves as a demonstration of the shocking amount of trash that we consume produce.
