Black Plastic Pollution on our seabed

Like and oil spill, plastic never goes away is an all black immersive installation. 
The exhibition space is transformed into a window that reflects on the state of our oceans’ seabeds.

The work is assembled out of the black plastic I have collected from Port Phillip Bay and gleaned from the streets around my studio.

Most of the plastic ‘detritus’ appearing in the work passed through our hands, used only once before being discarded in the overflowing bins of our city streets before washing up on our shores.

The work explicitly asks “how much more plastic do we need?” With current rates of consumption we are arguably at a point of no return. One can easily foresee the whole sea (as in this installation) being strewn with debris that will never disappear unless we stop using plastic, start to care for our eco-system and reconnect with our environment.
