121 containers made of glass, filled with thousands coloured screw tops from empty plastic bottles, illuminated by garden lights was the recent project by sculptor Victor Castro Lozano, I live near the place of the event and as far as I know, most of the bottle tops were recollected in the central park of Miraflores, Lima, the name of the project was named "SOY UN RECOLECTOR" (I AM A RECOLLECTOR), though I took some pictures like the one above I never knew if there were really exactly 121 containers but the idea was pretty clear, though there is still a doubt in my mind: what is he going to do with so much plastic...is he contributing with the ecology or not?...donate them to make more plastic?...sell the pieces separately?...you choose.
