This is a Mutable Mobile—a fluid object designed to travel and change over time. It can be assembled and disassembled with simple tools and might gradually change shape without disappearing altogether. This object sits within the broader web of concerns of the Re-Form Initiative: a design-research project examining the responsibility of designers in the context of post-consumer plastic waste. That larger project assembles a multitude of actors—designers, architects, funding bodies, government agencies, non-profit organisations, community groups, marine scientists, students, shearwaters, molds, mills, and machines—around a common concern.
