Coral reefs are one of the most beautiful and delicate natural phenomena on Earth but they are very sensitive to changes in the environment as well.
Coral reefs are one of the most beautiful and delicate natural phenomena on Earth but they are very sensitive to changes in the environment as well. One of the factors that influences this is the acidification of the oceans and rising temperature of the water. When the temperature rises above a certain point the symbiotic relationship of corals and coexisting creatures becomes disturbed. The bleached corals stop growing, and if their damage is very serious – they decay completely. It is estimated that by 2030 90% of the reefs around the world will be under threat, and by 2050 all will be under threat.
The project includes photographs of objects made entirely of disposable plastic (bottles, mugs, straws, etc.). These objects represent future reefs. If we do not drastically limit production of plastic, especially disposable packaging, the reef will be permanently destroyed and replaced by synthetic creations of Anthropocene such as these.
