Consumption

About this project

Mass consumption of ocean resources and sea life consuming plastic waste makes a deadly combination. My materials and imagery remind us that consumer choices have a profound impact on the environment.

Consumption is a series of large crocheted plastic bag tapestries depicting whales and ocean waves as nets. ┬áNature’s ability to endlessly reuse and adapt inspires my desire to eliminate post consumer plastic and reimagine it as art. Equipped with a crochet needle, and the help of my extended community, this ongoing series diverts hundreds of plastic bags from our oceans.
