SEA CHANGE: An Art Installment by Sophie J. Nelson

Sophie J. Nelson is a seventh grade artist from California inspired by the tons of plastic waste that she studied in school through art, community service and science.

“I believe that art can contribute to positive change. People can be given facts that inform them, but when you experience art, it involves all of your senses. Art can trigger powerful emotions that inspire people to take action.”

This installation is made out of found and recycled plastic waste and aims to emotionally connect you to the ocean; to raise awareness about plastic pollution, and provide information about how we can make a difference through our daily decisions.”
