Tired of copious amounts of plastic choking the city, IAmGurgaon, an initiative aimed at awakening the citizens and making them aware about pollution, took a few substantial steps. They have installed a plethora of sculptures which are rather craftily curated along with Municipal Corporation of Gurugram and ArtPilgrim Live, an art gallery in the city and they initiated a campaign called ‘Where does it go?’.

This venture is focused on building awareness around the piling of plastic wastes and how it is impacting us and our environment through the medium of art. This initiative has also been awarded a sustainability award and has been opening eyes and garnering attention ever since.

Wazirabad Bundh in Sector 43 of Gurugram, was selected to be renovated and what was once a barren land, now hosts 11 sculptures which were moulded by using different kinds of waste including plastic bags, bottles, cans and so on! Each of the installations communicate a message about the deep-dyed impact of waste that we generate daily and our basic need to segregate junk.

One of the structures is called the ‘toxic chamber’ which is a large cave like structure, created by artist Arun Kumar along with 11 other local artists. It is a functional space that allows people to experience, observe and feel the waste that they have generated. It has been erected to make people physically see the amount of plastic waste they generate deliberately or otherwise.

Other installations here are themed around waste which is hazardous to marine and land animals; who often ingest the said waste.

Honestly this initiative has raised questions which need to be answered and we really need to turn into new leaves and not be this negligent about our immediate environment. This project deserves all the popularity and our support because through art, they’re making us understand the gravity of the situation out there. It's high time we open our eyes to it.
