Beneath Our Shorelines transforms marine debris into new, strange, mutated forms that differ markedly from the rich natural diversity of aquatic sea life. The piece represents the far reaches our waste has and its impact upon the earth’s fragile aquatic ecosystems.
Inspired by the annual event hosted in partnership with World Wildlife Fund – The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup – the project recontextualizes the materials found on our shores. The remarkably successful cross-country event resulted in almost 200,000 kilograms of waste being collected.
Conceived and executed for WWF’s inaugural fundraising event, Pandamonium, this project connects Shoreline Cleanup with WWF’s mandate of education and advocacy.
