An interactive piece highlighting the issue of plastic in the food chain

This project is both an installation and interactive work which addresses the problem of plastic entering our food chain. The installation includes plastic hands that cast a shadow onto the screen, which shows scenes from the deep ocean where marine organisms live. The hands symbolize the action of throwing waste into the sea, and below the screen, there is a sandy beach riddled with plastic waste.
