Trash in the Ocean Becomes Part of a Scuba Diving Art Project

Using items that often end up in the oceans, polluting the water and endangering the species that live there, Mathieu Goussin and Hortense Le Calvez created a series of scuba diving art. The images capture the incongruousness of plastic and other artificial materials imitating sea creatures.

Water bottles, plastic streamers, wires and even clothing take on the form of jelly fish, coral reefs and other underwater life, pretending to blend into the natural environment. The bizarre and unsettling visuals draw attention to the problem of a consumerist culture that disposes of almost everything and doesn't pay much attention to the impact on its environment.

This scuba diving art project reminds us that we are not alone on this planet. Stats for Underwater Pollution Installations Trending: Older & Buzzing
