Artist Mandy Baker uses photography to capture the marks made by human waste washed up along the shore to convey a message about the threat we pose to marine life.
"Discarded debris found along the shore and having existed for
varying amounts of time in the sea collectively convey a message
about the marine environment. The images combine visual beauty
with the message of pollution and the time it takes them to
biodegrade in the sea.”
‘Green pedestrian crossing’ by Jody Xiong
I found this work last year and when discussing the idea of ‘mark making in class’ it sprung to mind. The work is an installation performance piece designed to prompt walking instead of driving amongst the people of China.
“This outdoor advertisement was leveraged on a busy pedestrian crossing; a place where both pedestrians and drivers meet.”
