Plastic Ocean: Art and Science Responses to Marine Pollution, Berlin,
Boston: De Gruyter, 2021

Edited by Ingeborg Reichle

Our oceans are in an ecological crisis due to their contamination with
millions of tons of toxic microplastic particles. In just a few years,
the volume of microplastic particles will exceed that of plankton in
our oceans and turn them into a huge sea of plastic. This publication
brings together numerous international art projects related to
environmental activities, DIY biotechnology, and science, and draws
attention to the irreversible destruction of our marine ecosystems –
the current threat posed by the loss of marine animal biodiversity,
for example, or the decline in oxygen production due to massive
plankton loss, to raise awareness about the impact of mass consumerism
and environmental injustice, from which countries of the Global South
are suffering disproportionately. It also presents current scientific
findings on sustainable alternatives to plastic.
