Prayer for all the Fishes


2021. Repurposed plastic vessels, found text, fishing line, swivel hooks. Dimensions when installed as shown 600x400x10mm. This object embodies the ever increasing tension the artist experiences between the ecological destruction being wrought and being an inextricable part of the system causing it. In a durational, sustained act of mindful care these mass produced plastic fish were collected, cleaned, then hand-fed lines of text from Greta Thunberg’s speeches imploring humanity to wake up and take action. This ridiculously long string of nonsensical prayer beads invites contemplation of our present predicament.
