Plastic Ocean 2016
Series of public projection installations
‘1500 per second’, water bottles are used as a symbol for the environmental impact humans have through everyday life and consumption. The work was developed during a week residency in January utilizing the readily available objects to create a new projection work that responds to the architecture of the site at Alys Beach in Florida. The title, ‘1500/second’, quotes the number of plastic water bottles that are used in the US per second. The work aims to inspire reflection on global environmental issues.
‘Bon voyage’ speaks of the bottles that follow the waterways floating out into the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, leaching toxins posing a threat to marine life and humans.
