clean up the world weekend 2010




This is my collection from the "clean up the world weekend 2010". It took me 20 minutes to collect a shopping bag full of trash from under the sand on a beach that is cleaned up daily during the summer season - a tractor ploughs the plastic in to the sand. Everything looks nice on the surface. I think it is global trash and anybody on any beach in the world can do exactly the same picture.

  1. hey anke -
    a 20 minute cleanup! i love it! tonight was my 156th 20 min. beach cleanup on the daily ocean - my 365 non-consecutive day experiment to see how much trash one person can take off the beach. it was great talking to you about this before. be in touch - next time weigh your 20 minute count and i will add it to the daily ocean's community count. combined with my tally of pounds of trash collected off the beach we have over 1,000 pounds in less than half a year! yay!

    thanks for your work and beautiful art -

  3. anke! I am completely blown away by your beached art! You are so respectful to Mother Nature AND clever. You've made something so ugly into beauty. I'm not sure how I found your blog but I'm so glad I did. Thanks for making my day.

  7. hey Jenn - thank you. this took about 3/4 hour to arrange it. collecting 20-30 minutes - it is a place with quiet a lot of trash because of streaming and wind.

  8. hey Jenn - p.s. it takes a lot longer to arrange it in the studio to glue it. 3-4 hours to arrange and 2-3 days to glue it.
