A multi-dimensional installation addressing the need to protect our marine environments

This multi-piece project displays tarp prints of the ocean that compare its natural beauty with arrangements of beach pollutants. This composition highlights when these marine environments are unprotected. It also uses camera recordings, projections, and schematic speakers at 432 Hz to broadcast the sound of ocean waves; the frequency is thought to be healing as well as the natural frequency of the universe.
