A quick video post: One Plastic Beach

One Plastic Beach from Tess Thackara on Vimeo.

For the past 12 years, Richard Lang and Judith Selby Lang have been collecting plastic debris that have washed up on the shore of a beach in North Carolina. With all this plastic garbage, they make art sculptures, prints and large showcase installations.

Take a moment to think about all the plastic that is meant to be disposable – toys, bags, packaging, utensils. But where does it all go? They end up washed up along shores, in our landfills and in the Pacific Gyre, or what the name that it has come to be known as because of its appearance – the Great Pacific Garbage Patch – a toxic soup of degrading plastic debris.

Learn more about Richard and Judith’s art and their plastic curating thoughts and experiences through their website and blog.
