Turning Back the Tide

Burnt plastic rubbish, beach finds, crab claws, shells, recycled fishing nets, driftwood, plywood

Turning Back the Tide is the culmination of almost 20 years of collecting beach finds in Scotland. Almost 90% of the items are burned plastic rubbish! Locals collect rubbish at the beaches and burn it as a way of getting rid of it. The sea then washes the remnants back up and you have to look closely to realise that it is a catastrophy how much plastic is already in our environment. The sea and all the creatures in it are suffocating in it. We need to turn back the tide now!
