About this Art:

Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun + rain to make vibrant colors appear. Creating art out of micro plastics found on the beach resembles this. It’s sad to see how many plastics we find at the beach, but we reuse the plastics to create art. This way we help address the amount of trash found in an art form. When you see trash on the ground, pick it up, because you don’t know what animal could potentially eat or get harmed by it.

Kiele's Story:

The ocean is an important place to me because as a surfer, I grew more connected to the ocean. I feel that as people, we have a responsibility to take care of our planet and ocean. I use micro plastics sourced from the shores of O'ahu and incorporate it into my designs to create an art pieces. Getting these micro plastics off the beach, we are making a difference for our future gens.
