Tessa Laget, Under the midnight zone

master beeldende kunsten

In this project I create imaginative deep sea worlds with my plastic trash to question my own impact on the environment. Did you know that approximately 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in the ocean every year? This is a number that is hard to understand for us, because it is too abstract. What is the individual role we play in this narrative? A drop in the ocean? Maybe, but a lot of individuals form a collective, which can create a significant difference.
