|Henry the Giant Fish, pleased to make your acquaintance|
Pozzi is the lead artist and director of the Washed Ashore project, based in Bandon, Oregon.
This traveling show is made up of art pieces like Henry the Giant Fish, Lidia the Seal, and Tula the Sea Turtle, all composed of plastic taken from the beaches.
Over 7000 pounds of debris have been cleaned up on 20 miles of coastline, and over 500,000 people have viewed or participated in the effort to collect, clean or build the sculptures.
There are plenty of ways to approach a problem--and Henry and his Washed Ashore friends are getting out word about plastics and the gyres (<--and this link is another).
