Pelagic Plastic.

On the Beach by Tim Pearn, is a thought-provoking look at the insidious build-up of small-scale plastic detritus on the wild and pristine beaches of Western Australia.

Through high-quality photography, videography and an installation of 40 packages of plastic waste collected by Pearn during 40 walks along the beach, the exhibition draws attention to issues of environmental pollution, hazards to wildlife and a largely unseen ‘universe’ of waste material accumulating around us.
