10. SMACK OF JELLYFISH
LAUNCH DATE: April 2018
Hand woven from marine debris, this smack of jellyfish promote conversations, thoughts and actions about ocean littering, recycling and caring for our planet.
Christine on the development and process of the "Smack of Jellyfish":
This "smack" or "bloom" of jellyfish has been hand woven using ethically sourced reclaimed marine debris, mainly tuna line, ropes and ghost netting. There are about 50 jellyfish and they are clustered together as a true representation of one of the many fascinating characteristics of jellyfish. Just as real jellyfish are biologically immortal, have no brain and can be both deadly and beautiful, so too are these jellyfish. Marine waste, including oceans plastics and single use plastics are a major part of an alarming global issue that requires our full attention and immediate action.
"A Smack of Jellyfish" is art with a strong environmental message "smack" in your face.
