Washed Up: an ongoing project at the protected Sian Ka’an reserve in Mexico by artist Alejandro Duran, who collects the plastic detritus washed up on the Carribbean coast, grading and rearranging it (in rather pleasing ways) to draw attention to ocean pollution.

My work speaks of things that are timeless, and I think that for most of us the ocean represents something timeless.
