“Welcome to our Planet”
by Shintaro Miyake

Welcome to our Planet

Welcome to our Planet can be seen as a com- mentary on the ongoing environmental debate. The artist Shintaro Miyake reminds us of how important it is to recycle to avoid environmental degradation.

Around a well-used waste station for transparent glass stand hundreds of small, red aliens. Along with the station, which has been given arms and legs, they welcome the museum’s visitors to “their” world.
