Finding Meaning in the Mess:

Beach Plastic

Since 1999 Judith Selby Lang and Richard Lang have collected more than two tons of plastic trash from 1000 yards of Kehoe Beach along the Point Reyes National Seashore. They have transformed this debris into engaging works of art that raise awareness of the sheer variety and ubiquity of plastic pollution and its impact in delicate marine ecosystems. They keep a blog to track their adventures, to document what they are finding and to record how this one beach has become a pinpoint describing the whole world.
