    What a grubby lot we are! 😦

  2. The beach where I live is relatively clear but each piece I pick up makes me sad . . . or angry . . . or both.

    “Congwong” is beautiful! How dreadful to say that, but is as you said, disturbingly alluring! It’s all in the presentation of course, and “Plastic Ecology”, although similar in material, shows itself to be more unappealing. I spend hours picking up rubbish on the beach and so I really appreciate this exhibition. The water bottles look interesting with their messages. I imagine you could spend a long time there, reading. Oh, Mo, we have so much to do…

    I’m always picking up plastic from our beaches here. So distressing! The art show looks amazing – hope it has a positive impact.

    Water … it is very much the topic of conversation here as drought persists and population booms. As we drive through the Hill Country there are signs identifying the aquifer recharge zones. The supply is pretty tenuous.

    And plastic … the Congwong piece reminds me of my cousin’s art installations … you can see her work here: http://www.portiamunson.com
