“Is it waste? Art drifting over borders. Waste floating in society” at the GEIC, Tokyo.

eco04From the Tokyo Wonder Site – ‘The mass of marine debris washed ashore on the Japanese Islands is said to be approximately 15 million tons per year. The marine pollution is becoming a serious social problem and has also been recognized as a growing international issue as flotsam crosses borders.
Linked with an open symposium “Creative Dialogue and Commitment to the Environment” at the United Nations University, the exhibition “Is it waste? – Art drifting over borders. Waste floating in society -” aims to share and create awareness regarding environmental issues, marine pollution and mass consumption society, focusing on growing concerns about marine debris and wastes. In addition, the exhibition explores possibilities of new dialogue and proposal for the environment and reconsiders the value and the role of art in society through creative practices by displaying art works with flotsam and waste materials and introducing art projects.’
