New art installation highlights plastic pollution in the ocean

An artist from Singapore called Tan Zi Xi has brought the horrors of plastic pollution in the ocean to life with an amazing new art installation. Called “Plastic Ocean,” it shows how it feels to live in an ocean in which the surface is completely covered in a layer of plastic rubbish.

Working with hundreds of pieces of plastic items which are known to pollute our planet’s oceans, this installation shows viewers exactly where their single use plastic ends up and how it invades the habitat of whales, dolphins and other sea creatures.

The installation has been on show in at the Sassoon Docks Art Project in Mumbai.
