Plastic Flotsam Installation
The core of the exhibition is a large amount of original plastic flotsam. This plastic garbage was collected during beach cleanup campaigns in each country – Morocco, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon. It places what for many people is an abstract phenomenon directly at their feet. From the pieces shown visitors can trace the origins, life cycle, sense and senselessness of plastic products. Alongside puzzling objects from the fishing industry you can find remnants of familiar everyday objects such as tooth brushes, combs, and bottles etc. which show clear signs of having drifted around in salt water, as well as traces of encounters with sea creatures.
