Müllkunst aus dem Meer

 „sachensuchen am strand besteht längst nicht mehr

nur aus muscheln, rund gewaschenem holz, steinen,

schneckengehäusen und federn, sondern auch aus

PLASTIK in allen regenbogenfarben. meine bilder

sind ein spaziergang am strand der jetztzeit.“

Die Collagen sind bis 14. September zu sehen

im Meeresmuseum Stralsund.

“within the north atlantic and north pacific gyres

there are up to 200,000 pieces of plastic litter

floating on every squarekilometre (seaeducationassociation)

the decomposition of today`s plastics takes up to 600 years –

60-80% of all plastic litter reaches the ocean through the rivers –

60% of debris items are disposable (oceanconservancy).”

“The debris for my collages I found on the beaches of Warnemünde

at the Baltic Sea – one of Germany`s most cleaned up tourist resorts.

I would like to focus on the plastic problem all around us.

Every time I walk on the beach I am at the same time fascinated and frightened

about this side by side of nature and plastic. How the sea works on the debris

and sometimes you don´t know what is what. The variety of beached items

is immense and makes you wonder about their journey and the story behind.

My collages are about environmental awareness. It is so normal for us

to be surrounded by plastic. I would like to sharpen the eye for

this human footprints on the beach, in the ocean. Doing it with art is

a nice way of learning. For me it is very satisfying to combine

the daily walk on the beach with a little cleanup and to recycle

the plastic litter into art. Hope you enjoy it!”
