World of Corals

Ludwig Migl focuses the view of the world on the coral reefs in the Red Sea. The way the images are taken makes a direct reference to the climate catastrophe and motivates us to work to preserve the beauty of our planet.

Walk with me…

Ocean Plastics – Video

Here’s the “Ocean Plastics” Video we’ve introduced at the vernissage from Ludwig Migl’s exhibition “Faszinierende Welt des Wassers”. Some more background and link to the must read IUCN study “Primary microplastics in the oceans“ see here.

 

Ocean Plastics

UW-Landschaft im Baggersse Linkenheim

Did you know that

  • 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean every year?
  • 1.5 million tons out of it are “invisible” (micro plastics)?
  • The average seafood eater ingests 11,000 plastic particles per year?

Especially the “invisible” tons of plastic were motivation pure for our current project about micro plastics. It’s a scary feeling that a perfect world like in the above picture is threatened by an invisible danger. The fact that you don’t see the pollution makes it hard to get the topic on the agenda.

We learned a lot about micro plastics in the course of this project. E. g. that 2/3 of the micro plastics are from the erosion of synthetic textiles and tyres! If you want to find out more we’d like to encourage you the read the new IUCN study “Primary microplastics in the oceans“.

We decided to create awareness for the ocean plastics topic. The start is here:
