These are a series of sculptures I made as a satirical response to our marine environment and its pollution. I collected flotsam, jetsam and rubbish from various beaches and constructed these mask-like pieces. I returned them to the beach left them there for a week as the tide came in and out around them.
This site-responsive intervention initially obscures the seriousness of the subject matter with their fun and innocent appearance. On closer observation these ‘creatures’ or ‘intruders on our shoreline’ tackle the issues of pollution and how our marine life is being threatened by our toxic waste and non-perishable objects found in abundance on our picturesque beaches.
After photographing the sculptures on location all items were then removed to be recycled or disposed of in an appropriate manner.
