Lisa Christensen invites you to experience our poisoned oceans in her interactive installation Plastic Water.

In the words of the artist:

“Currents in all of the world’s oceans flow in gyres or circular patterns. Anything floating around can accumulate over time in these gyres.

Blow on the Diatom Mobile to make air currents and see the Brownian motion of magnified unicellular creatures created by 5th graders from Watsonville Charter School of the Arts and watch their videos about our consumption and disposal of single use plastic items.ons with drifting aerial dancers as “ailing sea creatures” who navigate the “new normal” of our plasticized oceans.

Viewers can manipulate, ride on, write about and imagine the hazards of modern aquatic life:

Pull strings to make waves in the Meandering Marionette Kelp Forest made of plastic bags with strings or bob around on bungees.

Blow on the Diatom Mobile to make air currents and see the brownian motion of magnified unicellular creatures created by 5th graders from Watsonville Charter School of the Arts and watch their videos about our consumption and disposal of single use plastic items.
