September/October 2010 IN OUR TIME

On the Seashore As an island, Britain is dominated by its coastline – rugged, beautiful and inspirational – but it’s a coastline that sadly, and all too often, is increasingly polluted by plastic waste of all shapes and sizes washing up on its shores. Now, in a bid to raise awareness of the problem, a new online participatory ar t project (www.marineplastic.org) is inviting UK beachcombers to help document those places where plastic waste is spoiling the shoreline. The project is the brainchild of ar tist Steve McPherson, founder of Marine Art, who is planning to incorporate some of the images submitted in his wall-hung ar tworks.
