“I have been an active environmentalist since I was a teenager. I collected and recycled soda bottles and metal cans. Now, many years later, the problem of waste has grown exponentially. Glass bottles have been replaced by single-use plastic. Despite recycling as much as possible, plastic waste continues to clutter the environment. So much more needs to be done. To bring awareness to this situation, I make use of my strongest voice: art making.
A thrift store globe is placed on a plaster pedestal. It is nestled on a wreath of floral vegetation selected to resemble sargasso seaweed. Laced throughout the seaweed is harvested plastic bits collected from the urban and maritime environment of North Eastern Maryland. Small bits of plastic map the location of the Sargasso Sea with its huge eddy of waste mostly plastic.”
