The sculptures that make up the Human Debris series are so striking, it would take people by surprise that they were made with manmade waste, hence the title. While some people might be taken aback at the thought of beautifying such litter, others will see Human Debris as a natural, if unfortunate, part of life.

Created by Jeremy Underwood, an artist based in Houston, Texas, the Human Debris series explores the environmental conditions of his city's waterways. As written on his website, "Taking reference from such artists as Andy Goldsworthy, Robert Smithson and Richard Long, this work challenges viewers to reflect upon our consumer culture, the relationship we have with our environment and the pervasion of pollution."
