2019 - Ongoing

To change something, just "do" something. Anyone can contribute to a change, with their own means. We have realized a photographic project. The whole world throws its nets, receiving plastic in exchange. The same net gives life to a small red fish, called to represent the entire marine community, in which plastic fragments are recognizable. In Asia, Africa, America and Europe the rivers that pour most pollution into the sea are: The "Yangtze" in China that transports up to 1.5 million tons of plastic into the sea every year, the "Nile" that flows into the Mediterranean Sea , the "Amazon River" in Brazil and the "Danube" in Romania that carries from 530 to 1500 tons. Localized through the Google Earth server, we have imprinted the course of these rivers in photographs that have been inkjet printed on transparent plastic sheets. Photographed on a white wall that, with its texture, brings us back to the stalemate of pollution on the sea. A subject that finds itself executioner and victim of its own household waste (suffice it to say that through food and water, humans introduce 50 thousand plastic particles into the body) flanked by one of the industrial realities, that deals with the recycling of plastic materials in the Italian territory: Italrec srl. Here, large HD polyethylene walls, industrial material and polypropylene have new life with recycling.
