Ocean Conservation by Charm Love Art

  Charmoné Botha, The Age of the Jellyfish 1 (2017). Video still.

I was inspired by a documentary on Sky News about a dead whale whose intestines were filled with plastic bags, suggesting that the whales mistake the plastic bags for jellyfish and ingest them. In relation to ocean conservation, the images above with plastic shopping bags are suitable analogy for the non-biodegradable waste that is fed into the oceans, since it is an insurmountable problem that can only be resolved if we find biodegradable alternatives to plastic.
