The oceans are an exciting and vital part of our planetary eco systems. Teaming with life, they contain millions of co-existing species in perfect balance. Except for one exception who isn't even a resident - mankind.

In Oceans with Plastic Bag, I'm reflecting on how we exploit and contaminate the oceans without any sense of sustainability or responsibility. Long considered a giant tip, I've positioned a huge plastic bag alongside a giant jelly fish. 

Around them families of different kinds of creatures congregate in harmony, trying to survive in spite of the human debris in the warming oceans. 

It's difficult to get a clear view of all the details in an online art gallery, so here are a series of closeups to show a little more detail.
