101 Individual Roaches made from High-density polyethylene (HDPE) harvested from 20 Milk Jugs and Molded with a 1964 Mattel Thing Maker Roach Mold #4490-056
This project takes it name from the expiration dates still visible after the HDPE plastic was hand cut, melted and molded into 101 bespoke roaches. The blow molded plastic jugs used in the process were invented in the 1960s as was the Mattel Thing Maker which used a substance called Plastigoop to create DIY Toys.
