From Trash to Treasure

Artist Patric Rozario was contacted by the Environment Department of The Pearl-Qatar to create an art installation using plastic bottles and bottle caps. He took on this project to create an Eco Pond made entirely out of domestic plastic waste. Working together with 3 other fellow artist, they worked over a month to prepare for this art installation – From Trash To Treasure. This pond measures 16 feet x 8 feet. For 2 consecutive weekends, they involved the community of Doha (including residents of The Pearl-Qatar and some school children), to complete this pond. Qatar Green Building Council reached out to all schools in Qatar, and collected 60,000 plastic bottle caps. This Eco Pond was finally assembled at Porto Arabia and unveiled on Earth Hour – 29th March 2014.
