Liina Klauss, Desa Potato Head

Sandals salvaged from the beaches of Bali with a powerful message: “Everything we throw away comes back to us—via the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil we grow.”

In its ongoing mission to “provide good times and do good” Potato Head collaborated with award-winning German art activist Liina Klauss to demonstrate the reality of marine pollution. The artist created a large-scale installation at Desa Potato Head constructed from over 5,000 plastic flip-flops, all picked up in just six visits to beaches along Bali’s west coast.


“Everything we throw away comes back to us, via the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil we grow crops and raise animals on. Flip-flops are just one example; there is potential within all these materials we waste and consider worthless,” said artist Liina Klauss.”
