The Born Animals of the Plastic Beach


What will happen when the tide overflow of our products rejected, abandoned on Earth and collected by the sea, where pollution has touched so many species of life will be diminished?

I already imagined this universe in my sculptures, cities in motion necessary for human survival. This science fiction is near when we see that the animals are already changing territory. One may wonder what they will become, like so many species are already extinct, if they find more resources.


I imagine animals the results of our consumer society and of its surplus products. I gather on the beaches the petroleum products and its industry. The choice of animals on endangered species complete this process.

By covering these animals a new edge skin harvested from the sea I hope to draw attention to this potential metamorphosis.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
