'the overuse of plastics'
The concept of those images is to clearly demonstrate the overuse of plastic
packaging for food, from the supermarkets and to exhibit the plastics in an
exaggerated way as the packaging.
Chris Jordans’ image of a decomposed albatross had been an
inspiration for the photo of the wrapped sardines in plastic foil that contained glitter
inside to convey a message to reduce the use of microplastics, as well as plastics.
Whereas the rest of the images link to other problems within the plastic pollution.
Another source of inspiration came from seeing Marina Debris’ installation, in which
she created her own ‘Inconvenience Store”. A small shop in which plastic objects
found on the beach were re-packed and put back into the shop for sale in order to
raise awareness of how much plastic people buy that ends up in the ocean.
