Veolia Germany asked CRIS WIEGANDT to create a Berliner Bear sculpture out of recycled plastic flakes - as a gift for the Veolia president. It was all very exciting. One of the challenge we faced was, which glue holds it all together? Not every glue works with different types of plastic (especially recycled ones), dries fast, stays transparent and is easy to use. After several tests we found a solution: A special superglue and acrylic gel. We had a limited amount of time. However, thanks to the Modeling Artist Sana Schönle and the help of Gosia Borowiec, we were able to finish the sculpture on time.
