The objects in this exhibition were collected from the beach near my home in Hayama. Like an archaeologist studying past civilizations, I am fascinated by the items that wash ashore, revealing the ongoing conflict between nature and our consumer-driven society. Plastic pollution in our oceans is causing significant harm to marine life. Birds, fish, and other sea creatures mistake these objects for food, leading to severe health issues and starvation. As plastics break down into microplastics, the consequences cascade through the food chain, affecting smaller species. Astonishingly, the majority of this rubbish originates not from beaches or dumping at sea, but is urban waste that finds its way to the ocean via storm drains and rivers.
