Man’s careless, and sometimes callous, actions have an inadvertent impact on our natural environment. Ocean pollution is an inadmissible threat to marine life, and the consequence is most apparent to people around the world that rely on the oceans for livelihood and sustenance. There is a dire need for positive action.
Fish, turtles, squid, and jellyfish made from ocean debris, including abandoned fishing nets and recycled plastics, Ghost Nets of the Ocean is a spectacular marine-themed exhibition created by indigenous and non-indigenous artists from Erub Arts on Darnley Island, Torres Strait, Australia. These colourful woven sculptures, hanging suspended and dramatically lit throughout the gallery, show the peoples connections to the sea, and strive to generate awareness of ocean pollution, recycling, and conservation of the marine environment.
