Inspired by the approach of archaeology, I value plastic in the sea as future relics of today’s utensils. The cyanotype technique was originally used to make actual size contact prints of plants, like seaweed. Now, I use this technique for plastic waste to emphasize the organic shapes, caused by long presence in the sea. By reproducing every single object I find, I try to get grip on the huge amount of plastic in the sea. While doing this project I realized that we only add to the mass and that plastic made in the 50’s still exists. Plastic fades in colour and breaks up in tiny pieces, but will remain forever.
