I had the opportunity to make an installation for the public art installation space “1 Main Window” in Brooklyn. The space looked like an empty aquarium, and I filled it with sea like creatures made from collected plastic detritus. Creating these plastic organisms generated a way to reflect on the constant influx of these ecologically devastating items that persist for thousands of years. The ocean remains one of the largest sites for plastic waste on the planet, and the “Aquarium” showcases a floating world where our role in the pollution of the planet is highlighted.
