Drowning in Plastic

This is my personal response to the 'Plastics' project, looking at the damage done to the environment and in particular the ocean due to plastic waste. The entire piece is created out of elements of plastic, the obvious plastic trapping the fish but also the 'sea' is bits of painted plastic ironed and layered together. This is a comment on not only the obvious plastic rubbish in the sea but also bringing light to the invisible microplastics that we cannot see but are also polluting the ocean. I want this piece to make the viewer think about their own plastic consumption and the consequences of their actions.

the Loss of Identity

For the Fine Art specialism project 'Loss,' I explored the loss of identity. The piece can be interpreted in whichever way is most personal to the viewer. The loss of childhood/innocence, identity change to fit in with societal situations and standards, the effect of social media and the beauty industry on our image identity and many more. Our personal identity has been lost and warped in today's society and people are finding it harder to know who they are anymore.
