Balancing Act

Skills: Installation
Found objects, dimensions variable, 2019-2020. 


The artworks that comprise Balancing Act are installations of found objects at the beach. The installations incorporate collected plastic debris at the beach, raising awareness about an plastics in the ocean and the impact on the ocean, beaches, and future generations. What began as weekly collaborations with her family on socially distanced excursion during quarantine, became a more earnest attempt to contemplate and reflect the tipping point our planet has reached. Are we so intertwined with plastic production that it has become integrated into our natural world or can we push the balance back to a more organic state with less waste?
