MOTHER OCEAN art exhibition by Bibo Keeley

MOTHER OCEAN art exhibition by Bibo Keeley 1

In a striking series of photographs taken around Scotland’s coastline the artist witnesses signs of a disrupted eco-system. Three short performance-based video pieces also address environmental issues in different ways. The exhibition also includes an installation using discarded plastic marine litter from Aberdeenshire beaches.

Plastic and climate change are linked.

In the first 10 years of this century more plastic has been produced than in the entire 20th century.
Plastics are made from liquid petroleum gases (LPG), natural gas liquids (NGL), and natural gas. The fossil fuel industries were warned as far back as 1968 that their release of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere would cause serious worldwide environmental changes.

The Stanford Research Institute scientists Elmer Robinson and R.C. Robbins predicted at the time that “significant temperature changes are almost certain to occur by the year 2000 and these could bring about climatic change.” They also warned of the melting of the Antarctic ice cap, a rise in sea levels and warming of the oceans.

According to GREENPEACE, 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics have been produced worldwide since the 1950s. 79% of this has ended up in landfills or in the natural environment.
Eight million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year.
Completely avoidable plastics like one-way packaging and other worthless throw-away items contribute hugely to the disruption of our eco-systems. Circa 50 percent of the plastic we welcome into our lives is used once and thrown away.
