This piece of art really stuck out to me. I think it says so much and it is disgusting but also fascinating to look at. I read into this piece of art and it amazes me. This piece was created by beer brand Corona and charity Parley for the Oceans collaborated to create this piece. It’s called Wave Of Waste. As I continued to read into this I realized how much work needed to be done to create this. But, as I continued reading, I saw that all the plastic was collected from one area. “The plastic wave was made using beach litter collected by The Marine Conservation Society from Holywell beach, East Sussex.”
This artwork included a picture of a famous Australian actor, Chris Hemsworth. He is surfing the “Wave of Plastic” as you can see in the background of this art work. Another critic says how it’s impossible nowadays to go to a beach and surf without seeing plastic. It’s very upsetting that all these beaches have so much trash on it that you can make a whole sculpture out of it. “The total weight was 1,200kg of plastic – the amount of marine plastic pollution found on the beach every two miles in the UK.” That is equivalent to 2645.5 pounds. That is mindblowing that all that plastic is in one piece of art.
