This coral museum display makes a statement on the state of the world's oceans.
The installation was made by twin sisters Margaret and Christine Wertheim and will be on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. Unsurprisingly to most people who follow science and environmental challenges, this coral museum display is a direct reference to the constant damage that coral reefs face -- in particular, Australia's Great Barrier Reef. The installation is diligent in its inclusion of details and was created through the practice of crocheting.
Made from fabric as well as plastic, this vibrant display sends a poignant message about the impact of climate change and excessive waste being dumped into the world's oceans.
