Gyre:The Plastic Ocean will be on show January 26-June 19, 2015 at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum: In Association with the Smithsonian Institution November 22 2014
A flip-flop discarded in Thailand finds its way to Hawaii, and a bottle cast off from a tsunami in Japan becomes Alaska’s beach litter. In a culture dependent upon the modern convenience of plastic, throwaway products of consumption are affecting oceans and shrinking our world as we all become connected through our trash.
A unique art and science exhibition, Gyre: The Plastic Ocean, brings the problem into perspective. Organized by the Anchorage Museum in Alaska, the exhibition explores the complex relationship between humans and the ocean in a contemporary culture of consumption.
