My project is about pollution in the oceans and the negative impact humans have on the environment in the sea. The first work showed consequences of destroying the coral reef. The method I used in depicting this was not clear enough, so I changed medium to the three-dimensional for my next work. Here I am making a whale with garbage in it. The garbage is something I have found my self on the beaches outside Bergen centre. My hope is that it will make people think some more before they throw away their garbage on the ground and not in the garbage cans. My plan for the next months is to continue making statues of sea creatures that has been harmed, which the humans is responsible for in some way.
