Plastic bags float: in our rivers, in our lakes and in our oceans - never to fully disintegrate. A permanent mark of man’s negative impact on our natural environment.
Conceptualist artist, Josette Bonafino, and fiber artist, Janell Wysock, have created a floating installation of over 50 plastic tapestries in response. Woven from thousands of plastic bags, Plastic Floats aims to make us pause before picking up or discarding the next plastic bag.
