Maarten Vanden Eynde is an artist and co-founder of Enough Room for Space. His work is situated exactly on the borderline between the past and the future; sometimes looking forward to the future of yesterday, sometimes looking back to the history of tomorrow. From 2008 to 2015, he worked on a project and sculpture called Plastic Reef, a growing installation of melted plastic debris from the world’s oceans. Currently he’s investigating the influence of transatlantic trade of pivotal materials (like rubber, oil, ivory, copper, cotton and uranium), on the evolution of humankind, the creation of nations and other global power structures.
