While humanity continues to consume more and more and our planet and oceans warm, plastic packaging in our oceans is growing at an alarming rate. There are positive steps underway to reduce and clean up, but the problem persists. What happens in the future to our fish and sea mammals? And consequently what happens to us as fish our part of a large interconnected ecosystem and food chain? This project explores a near dystopian future, where plastic and fish merge and mutate.
