These five handmade meta-bottles are available for long term display or purchase to the right organization.
Created from plastic bottle trash collected from the beaches of Point Reyes, they stand nine ft tall and are each 32 inches in diameter. Tip-resistant four foot x four foot marine-grade, sealed plywood bases for indoor or outdoor display as well as informative signage are included.
Humans need to reduce our avoidable dependence on single use plastic. This well-crafted art installation is an excellent way to inform society of the harm we are doing to the planet.
Below are images I made showing the wreck site, as well as efforts to protect the commercial oyster/clam/mussel beds in Tomales Bay, just 6 miles SSE of the wreck site.
Those of us who spend considerable time and energy cleaning up after the many shipwrecks that happen along our coast sincerely hope that the authorities will track down those responsible for this avoidable situation and ensure they pay the bill to clean up this mess. Simply pumping the fuel and lubricants off the ship and walking away, leaving the HUGE debris pile to come is NOT adequate.
