Made Out of WHAT presents “The Universal Sea”
August 5, 2019 • 8:00 am PDT
You don’t need to see a plastic straw being pulled out of a turtle’s nose to know that plastic pollution is a problem in our world’s oceans. So what to do about it? Cities are banning various forms of single-use plastic, but there are many other steps to take that are outlined in the just-released 464-page manual The Universal Sea: Pure or Plastic?!, which catalogs creative solutions to cleaning up our waters. The book is published by the Institute for Art and Innovation, based in Berlin. A book launch party and art exhibition in Chinatown, hosted by celebrated actor and environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr., includes an exhibition of art made out of consumer waste and plastic debris and a VR trash experience made by German film students.
Art exhibition, book launch and opening party on Thursday, Aug. 8; exhibition runs through Aug. 17.
