Out to Dry

Out To Dry by Andy Freeman and Samantha Penn is a public installation exploring how the microplastics used in clothing make their way into waterway systems via washing machines.

The installation consists of a series of washing machines presenting homespun experiments that raise questions about the ways clothes are made, worn and washed, provoking a new understanding of the microscopic particles hidden in the mud of the estuary and the journey they take through the pipes in our houses from the clothes we wear.
