Wednesday, Dec 4 

Visual Performance Art
The Rise of Plastzilla is conceived as an artistic response to worldwide plastic pollution in the oceans. It is a standalone project following the multimedia performance Deep Surface premiered in Miami Beach with support from UNESCO.

Plastic is ubiquitous. Despite its numerous functions, we are now confronted with serious plastic pollution challenges: from visible debris to microplastics, including chemicals that have been linked to hormonal disorders in animals (including humans.) www.plastzilla.org
