Description

Student: Carson S. Carroll

The earth is in the midst of a colossal pollution wave, and the issue will only continue to increase unless some equally immense changes occur. The initial act to inciting change is to promote recognition of the issue. TIDES UP is a body of work that exists at the intersection of fine art and science. It confronts the pressing issues of throw-away culture, single-use plastics, and marine pollution through artistic research and fieldwork. The methodology behind this work includes physical collection and documentation of beach litter, along with found material and environmental exploration. The data that were generated and exhibited in TIDES UP were collected over a three-month period from the three public beaches of Charleston, South Carolina. This body of work takes the form of a multimedia installation that combines sculpture, video projection, and photographs. It encourages viewers to contemplate their current impact on the environment and their future position for change.
