Our oceans usually provide the most beautiful images for the inner eye. Colourful underwater landscapes, corals and fish in all sorts of shapes. A world as beautiful and subtle as poetry.
And yet immensely sad photos of how we are on our way to destroy this poetry with waste and pollution keep appearing.
These are the thoughts behind these cotton buds titled "Clean Up” made in silver, south sea keshi pearls, ocean-rubbish from Danish beaches.
They are a reminder that we must clean up the mess we have made, clean up our habits, rethink how and what we use and throw away.
