Floating salmon figures were created from scores of salvaged plastic shopping bags. Anchored to the beach by marine rope and a rock borrowed from the beach, the salmon figures would rise or rest with the tides. This piece was installed before Seattle’s ban on plastic bags, and was an exploration of “trash art” referencing the unintentional fate of much of our plastics – the ocean, and its negative impact on ocean habitat.
