Description:
Our artwork consists of composition of dead dried fishes, agar agar gels representing the artificially polluted sea and one of the most prevalent waste, the plastic. Today the polluted water is very far away from its original pure form, therefore we have used an artificial gel instead of water emphasizing its less natural and man-made qualities. The dead and dried fishes are representing the long ago healthy, but now polluted forms of living creatures. We represent the plastic waste in original, by definition artificial form. We believe that the problem of living water pollution can only be solved if we handle the problem in a complex, interconnected manner. The waste itself is a human product, and the solution itself can only be provided using active human intervention.
