i Light Student Award 2020
Between the shore and the horizon lie beautiful deep royal blue waves that are therapeutic to behold, yet from the perspective of precious marine life that lives beneath, the view is far less seductive.
As plastic waste continues to accumulate in the ocean day by day, there is a dire need for efficient and sustainable solutions to the crisis. Eyes of the Sea is an installation that is upcycled by ironing and reshaping discarded plastic bottles to resemble captivating ocean waves, and casts wave-like shadows on the ground.
This brings to light the dichotomy of mesmerising waves on the surface, and the global problem of discarded plastics choking our oceans masked underneath.
