Would you descend into the deeps with these sea monsters?
Although there are several monsters, I like this next photo, which makes them look like a single beast, reclining ominously on the rocks between Bondi and Tamarama at Sydney’s annual Sculpture by the Sea.
For me, the sculpture, which is called ‘Overconsumption’, symbolises our descent into environmental chaos. It references the plastic rubbish that blankets parts of the Pacific Ocean, known as the trash vortex.
The sculptor, Kerrie Argent, collected 76,000 plastic milk bottle lids over four years so she could piece together this massive statement on our carelessness about the fate of our oceans.
Overconsumption was originally exhibited at Cottesloe Beach in Western Australia. The artist talks about it here.
