Ocean Initiatives 2012 in Warnemünde: 13 große Müllsäcke sind zusammengekommen. Trotzdem es so unspektakulär aussah - ganz viele Kleinteile im Seegras. Und trotzdem der Seenebel so kalt war. Herzlichen Dank an alle! Es hat großen Spass geacht.
I would like to focus on the plastic problem all around us. Every time I walk on the beach I am at the same time fascinated and frightened about this side by side of nature and plastic. How the sea works on the debris and sometimes you don´t know what is what. The variety of beached items is immense and makes you wonder about their journey and the story behind.
My collages are about environmental awareness. It is so normal for us to be surrounded by plastic. I would like to sharpen the eye for this human footprints on the beach, in the ocean. Doing it with art is a nice way of learning.
For me it is very satisfying to combine the daily walk on the beach with a little cleanup and to recycle the plastic litter into art.
Hope you enjoy it!
