  • Plastic, cardboard, sellotape

The BBC documentary 'Drowning in Plastic' inspired me to make this sculpture of someone drowning in a sea of plastic. It shows that it is humans who are causing plastic pollution and damaging wildlife. I wrapped sellotape around my Dad's arm, cut it off, then stuffed it and stuck it back together.
