Episode 13: Darren Hutchesson
Darren Hutchesson has had a lifelong love affair with plastic. A devoted Tupperware fan – and a distributor back in the 80s – he’s also a talented Lego designer (“Adult Fan of Lego”) who makes painstaking sculptures out of the tiny plastic bricks. Has done since he was a boy.
Also a devoted vegan, Darren’s a collector, a thinker and a great storyteller with a beautiful mind. He’s spent a good deal of time contemplating his relationship to both forms of plastic, as you’ll hear in this moving and sweet kitchen table conversation, about connection, memory, creativity and freedom.
Episode 13 released 22 May 2018.
