This touring exhibition by James Cook University Associate Professor Robyn Glade-Wright & Dr Barbara Dover considers the millions of tonnes of plastic that are discarded into the environment every year, and the resultant feelings of anxiety, anguish and grief. These artists use found plastic marine debris to create works that amplify and raise questions about such ecological destruction and how to move forward as individuals and a nation.
