Guest lecture by Maja and Reuben Fowkes
Today a vortex of waste covers vast ocean surfaces with undulating fields of discarded plastic, which on breaking down continue their sea voyage to contaminate the remote waters of the arctic as microparticles, intruding into biological realms through the inside sof unwitting fish and birds, and fusing with volcanic rocks to form unearthly plastoglomerates that wash up on Pacific islands. How have contemporary art and theory addressed the question of waste, the impact of manmade materials on the natural environment and exposure to toxicity?
