Artwork’s stark message on plastic pollution
A collage designed to highlight the amount of plastic pollution has gone on public display.
Plastic Tidal Wave was created with more than 2,000 plastic bottle tops collected by members of the public to mark World Water Day in March.
The artwork is now on show at the entrance to the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, which organised the water day event.
Hannah Horsfield, the BUEI education officer, said the design represented “the massive wave of plastic that consumes our everyday lives and will hopefully remind the public to reduce their daily plastic waste”.
Karla Lacey, the BUEI’s chief executive officer, added: “Guests who participated in BUEI’s World Water Day celebration said that creating the mural was an engaging and educational experience.
“Many stated that they intended to rethink their use of plastics, which was a primary objective of this project.”
The Plastic Tidal Wave exhibit will be on display until the end of June and then moved to a spot inside the BUEI.
