Nowadays, plastic is everywhere in the world. It is not only in places we can see, like in our homes or on the ground in the streets, but some plastics are so small they are almost invisible—they can exist in places we don’t see. Microplastics are penetrating our ecosystems. If plastic pollution continues to become more serious, one day our food will be filled with microplastics. To create my work, I used objects in our daily lives that I enhanced with several Photoshop techniques. I am encouraging people to consider microplastic debris that accumulates in small sea creatures. When predators eat the small creatures, more debris accumulates in their bodies and is then passed on to us when we eat them. It’s a plastic world.
