Oscillating between cellular and planetary impact, potentially lethal microplastics (MP) are imperceptible to the senses. Fejka (2022) seeks to make this invisible phenomenon visible, connecting data on MP from Aalborg University’s 2019 study to everyday objects, consumer habits, and the corporate agenda of neoliberal capitalism that give rise to the growing microplastic problem. Through critical and experiential information design, the piece aims to illuminate the world behind the data.
