By Joanna Lentini, March 27, 2017 @ 06:30 PM (EST)


Sculpture of family picnic surrounded by plastic pollution
 

In collaboration with Greenpeace, world famous sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor’s latest public art installation, Plasticide, is now on display in front of London’s National Theatre. The powerful sculpture depicts a family picnic on a beach plagued by plastic pollution. Part of the artwork is constructed with microplastics which were collected along the shores of Lanzarote, Canary Islands. The installation was produced to urge consumers, policymakers and packaging producers to cut back on the use of plastics.
