The feature at Interplas is a 'live' version of MoDiP's ongoing research project, based around the '10 most wanted' theme, which has been running since October 2012 and has so far unearthed some invaluable information from participants.
"Plastics are somewhat neglected in most museum collections," explained Susan Lambert, Curator at MoDiP. "Whereas it is common practice to specify of which wood or metal an object is made, plastic objects are frequently documented simply as being of plastic.
"MoDiP wants to put that right and has one advantage over more traditional museums: because most of its objects were made in living memory it is likely that someone, somewhere has the answer.
MoDiP is the only accredited museum in the UK with a focus on plastics.
And being less precious than many museum objects, they are often more anonymous, with both the designer and manufacturer unknown," commented Susan Lambert, Curator at MoDiP.
"Lettering on it tells us it [the duck clothes brush] was made in England and there is evidence of injection moulding," commented Susan Lambert, Head of MoDiP. "Wanted information includes who designed it, who made it, when it was made and the particular plastics used in its manufacture." The project will be going live in October.
"Plastics are the most used group of materials in the world, yet they are seldom given a second thought," explained Susan Lambert, Head of MoDiP at The Arts University College at Bournemouth.
I am proud that with the help of partners such as MoDiP, we are delivering our vision to use the power of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to boost understanding of design for sport and how plastics can contribute to sustainability."
