Continued Collaboration with Swaantje Güntzel
“Art has a very important function. It should not only be beautiful, especially in times when we humans are not beautiful. It is meant to mirror ourselves.”
In 2019, Ocean. Now! will take the current campaign “Microplastics in Cosmetics and Cleaning Products” to the next level. We are very grateful for the continuing collaboration with Swaantje Güntzel!
We are currently working at high speed on the concrete steps towards a more broad, colourful and loud representation of her piece of art “Microplastics II“. While we cannot publish any details yet, one thing we can reveal is that this upcoming new project will involve many more people pledging for the same on various levels: 1) Immediate ban of Microplastics in Cosmetics and Cleaning Products and 2) We need a new definition of Microplastics which includes gel-, paste-like or liquid polymers. Curious to learn more? Stay tuned and susbcribe for our newsletter!
And a call for anyone among you who is currently near the ocean and who wants to get engaged: We are currently looking for microplastic samples for a citizenscience-goes-arts-project. They should not be bigger than 5mm. If you have collected 50 pieces, take a picture and send them to us via mail.
Interested? Then give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
