Flotsam and Jetsam: The Cost of Modern Living | Meredith Andrews

Flotsam and Jetsam is a study of plastic waste washed up on the shores of Meredith Andrews’ home in the mid-Atlantic Island of Bermuda. The works draw attention to everyday items, reminding us of the short life span of the plastic objects and the implications of using them and discarding them. Approximately one third of all plastic waste ends up in nature, where it will never fully decompose. Each one of Andrews’ compositions comprises items which she collected along Bermuda’s coastline; her work extracts beauty from chaos, bringing to the forefront the ramifications of the 21st century’s throwaway culture.
