We decided to create the concept of the Sea to show that the sea aims to engage the people so it can be free of plastics. Sea is the character of the artwork by itself, related to the individual collective (of humans in this case) you can be part of the solution; are you game?
Eduardo Romaguera and Irene Carrasco Abad approach this project with a common interest on Sea, social citizens engagement and a playful artistic development, Irene as a designer with conceptual perspective and Eduardo as an artist and development of the artwork.
The artwork Sea is totally related to an active engagement with the Public, just by its image it communicate that citizens take an active part on the solution and also by the development of the workshops that together they take part in the plastic recover through a cleaning action of a beach or sea location, together coordinating efforts with an NGO or other experts Sea Partner to provide plastic material collectively to be up-cycled inside a letter. That, in this case, will be the letter A and half of thee.
We agree with The Universal Sea values and its community. Irene is a Designer engaged with sustainability and project development and connected to the Sea as an active sailor; with Eduardo Romaguera expertise and professional artwork, offering an alive example of social engagement, poetic performance and aesthetic sensibility.
Eduardo Romaguera mainly now as the active artist to continue the entrepreneurial effort of Irene Carrasco Abad, on the conceptual side made the group .Group name ‘Sea partners By Eduardo Romaguera and Irene Carrasco Abad, which will be lead now on development by Eduardo Romaguera.
