'Sea Things' by Sam Jacob concerns the correlation between marine life and plastic. It subtly and vividly imagines a life where the latter outnumbers the former, drawing attention to the dire state of the ocean.
The location for 'Sea Things' is the endlessly ornamental V & A Musem in London. The animated installation is suspended from the ceiling of the institution. The architect draws inspiration for the visuals from an artifact in the museum — a textile that boasts a pattern of sea creatures and fish. The original was brought to reality by Charles and Ray Eames. After a few swift updates, as well as the addition of plastic, Sam Jacob's 'Sea Things' envisions the progression and state of the ocean from 1907 until 2050.
