Mandy Barker Photography - making art "soup" out of all debris found in the ocean. Pretty cool looking.
Using what is referred to as "soup," Mandy Barker transforms the plastic debris found floating in the sea into ingredients for her art. Photo: mandy-barker.com
Plastic debris salvaged from beaches around the world. Mandy Barker's photo series SOUP draws attention to the growing garbage patch of plastic debris in the North Pacific.
Soup is a photo series that documents the millions of tiny pieces of plastic floating in our oceans. Pollution has never looked so pretty.
Mandy Barker 'soup: refused' ingredients: plastic oceanic debris affected by the chewing and attempted ingestion by animals, including a toothpaste tube additives: teeth from animals
SOUP is a description given to plastic debris suspended in the sea, and with particular reference to the mass accumulation that exists in an area of The North Pacific Ocean known as the Garbage Patch
Here is the work of recent graduate student from the UK, Mandy Barker. Entitled SOUP and named after the term given to plastic debris in the sea, this series of images aim to engage with, and stimulate an emotional response in the viewer by combining a contradiction between initial aesthetic attraction and social awareness.

Swiss artist Valérie Buess uses old books to create incredible sculptures that look like corals, sea urchins and other sea life

Organic sculptures made with rolled paper by Swiss artist Valérie Buess who lives and works in Germany.
Valerie Buess was born in Switzerland and is now based in Germany. By twisting, turning, folding paper and sometimes adding some color to her work, she creates organic and often abstract shapes inspired by underwater sea creatures. These sea urchins, coral reefs, algae, and seagrass, all made from recycled books, hint at mysteries of the deep sea and constitute a sculptural world above the surface.
Swiss artist Valérie Buess, books become tentacled sea organisms that she brings to life by hand.

Slow Slugs Artist Florentijn Hofman used 40,000 plastic bags to build two gigantic slugs in Angers, France for his 2012 outdoor installation “Slow Slugs.” Hofman installed the 60-foot-long multicolored slugs on a staircase leading to a church—signifying, according to Hofman, “their slow crawl towards death.”

Lost for 1,600 years, the royal quarters of Cleopatra were discovered off the shores of Alexandria. A team of marine archaeologists, led by Frenchman, Franck Goddio, began excavating the ancient city in 1998. Historians believe the site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves, yet, astonishingly, several artifacts remained largely intact. Amongst the discoveries were the foundations of the palace, shipwrecks, red granite columns, and statues of the goddess Isis and a sphinx.

Egypt alone is enough to enchant even the most avid traveler, but to visit Cleopatra’s divine underwater palace is like something right out of a romance novel. The gorgeous underwater stone structures are gothically charming and appeal to anyone who loves historical vacation spots and monuments.
Though I've been to Alexandrea several times (adore the new library!), Cleopatra's underwater palace, Egypt, is one place I won't see. I don't dive. Isn't it amazing, though!

A 36-Foot Tall Whirlwind of Garbage - My Modern Metropolis
Sculpture, Wind, Street Art, Artist Wang, Installation Art, Art Installations, Wangzhiyuan
Art installation: Chinese artist Wang Zhiyuan’s "Thrown to the Wind" 37-Foot-Tall Trash Tornado Spirals Into the Sky - made entirely from trash. Zhiyuan witnesses the garbage and pollution that litters the streets of his hometown of Beijing. He brings his concerns to the forefront through art. Great way to draw attention to an issue!
An impressive ‘tornado of trash’ installation by Chinese artist Wang Zhiyuan. // #art #installation #trash #sculpture
Things Organized Neatly--"Beijing-based artist Wang Zhiyuan piece entitled Thrown to the Wind ascends 36 feet into the air. Zhiyuan’s tornado of plastic waste is a reminder of the trash that overwhelms his hometown and it’s surrounding environment. It pretty much speaks to anyone - the reality is that we are all living with it the effects of non-disposable waste.
Beijing-based artist, Wang Zhiyuan, creates towering tornado sculptures from hundreds of plastic containers discarded as trash. The artist’s intent is to create something visually appealing while highlighting the prevalence of litter and pollution in his hometown of Beijing. This particular outdoor piece is entitled Thrown to the Wind and is 36-feet high.
