Visualizing Plastic Pollution

Plastic is pretty much forever, which means that there is a mind boggling amount of it out there as trash strewn across our landscapes and floating in our oceans.  While a beach covered in plastic is an eyesore, that plastic can still be put to an interesting, beautiful, and potential useful and informative end.

Richard Lang and Judith Selby Lang have been collecting the plastic from 1 km of beach and making art with it since 1999...

Laughing Squid has a nice little piece on the couple and their project up with some photos and the project has a website (the new version appears to be under construction, but has a link to an active fb page).
