Art installations created from plastic and trash that wash up from 50 countries around the world mirroring ocean pollution


Brooklyn, NY based artist Alejandro Duran collects numerous bits of garbage that washes up from 50 nations on 6 continents whilst he walks the beaches of Sian Ka’an, a UNESCO tropical nature reserve along Mexico’s Carribean coast and the largest federally-protected reserve in Mexico, who arranges the trash into site-specific installations and names the landscape art “Washed Up”. The photo series portrays the reality of the global catastrophe of ocean pollution.
