A flip-flop discarded in Thailand finds its way to Hawaii, and a bottle cast off from a tsunami in Japan becomes Alaska’s beach litter. In a culture dependent upon the modern convenience of plastic, throwaway products of consumption are affecting oceans and shrinking our world as we all become connected through our trash. A unique art and science exhibition, Gyre: The Plastic Ocean, brings the problem into perspective. The exhibition explores the complex relationship between humans and the ocean in a contemporary culture of consumption. See it at the USC Fisher Museum of Art now through Saturday, November 21.
