Drifting in Space
Year of Production 2017
Drifting in Space shows a new hard hat, floating amongst the reef, it sways and moves gently with the water currents but over, what appears to be a short time, it is forging a trench. The vegetated bottom is being eroded away by its presence, rocking with the current. How long will it be before plankton starts to settle on it becoming part of the reef before it creates too much damage? This hard hat could still be ingested by and damage life in the ocean.
