Plastic Waters

April 3, 2019

In the beginning, I had a notion of styling the model with nets and fish, and paint for the skin. I thought this would be a one or two image thing. The concept grew and ripened. The environmental aspect came along and the whole business escalated with that.

The plastic pollution of our waters is a global problem. We dump 8 million tonnes of waste in the sea every year, 80% of it plastic. For instance, the Great Pacific Gargabe Vortex is now an area three times the size of France.

Beautiful work. Just wish the fork (trident?) was a little more visible.
