Coral reefs are an essential part of marine ecosystems and coastal communities but are in decline due to climate change and plastic pollution. My work explores the fragility of coral and how plastic pollution threatens the health of coral reefs and what effects this can have on the future of our oceans. My piece features live coral alongside coral I have made from recycled plastic, displayed together in a small fish tank.
