We all know that pollution is a big problem, but artist Alejandro Durán has chosen to showcase it in a rather beautiful way. For Washed Up Durán collects trash that has made its way to the beaches of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve. He then creates color-based, site-specific sculptures that mimic nature. Over the course of the project plastic waste from fifty nations on six continents has been identified. Tragic and impactful.
