EAST BAY SHORELINE
medium: archival pigment print
Ocean currents follow systematic circular patterns, gyres. Once something gets into a gyre it tends to stick around and accumulate. Such is the case of plastic debris. It is estimated that eight million metric tons of plastic enter ocean each year (“How much plastic”). Walking along the East Bay shoreline we can get a glimpse of plastic debris that enters and accumulates into Pacific Gyre. We can witness debris of all sizes in various stages of disintegration mixed with natural elements such as bird feathers, small crabs, shrimps, sea shells, marine plants, twigs, seeds, and/or rocks.
