Okay I have decided to move back towards looking at the way we treat our natural environment and not each other for a while. This is a coat I made out of recycled shopping bags and water bottles a while ago. I put it into a slow moving outgoing current at Nudgee Beach, Brisbane today to photograph and film it (hats off to the people behind a film camera who get those beautiful and smooth moving images that I take for granted). So much of our waste slowly moves out to the ocean like this. Shopping bags is one of those things that unless we are really going to recycle it into another use, it is something that we can easily, very easily shop without having to use. Clothes are something else that is readily discarded after minimal usage. We all have a hand in it.
