Burial contributes to the global conversation of plastic pollution and its impact on life on Earth. A personal outcome of my research is that I have become more conscious of the amount of plastic that goes unnoticed until it is tossed away. Now we know that micro-fibres released in the production and consumption of mass-produced textiles and furnishing fillers pollute marine environments. It seems we have been digesting plastic through our consumption of smaller shellfish for some time. I applied my skills to the creation of GIF animations that I would filter into the online social space, where the speed of awareness is accelerated through the circulation of information.
