As a child, I would walk over beaches and through fields and forests to collect beautiful shells, shimmering stones, feathers and funnily shaped branches.
Much later, after I had moved from Holland to South Africa, I found myself doing the same thing. ‘Plastic Ocean’ is an art project, which I started to create awareness around pollution to try and prevent ( or at least reduce) plastic pollution.
Sometimes people gather in an isolated place in the countryside where there is a pool and float together.
One of the upcoming pop up float events is a floating concert at the oldest and biggest indoor swimming pool in Reykjavik.
In collaboration with musicians and artists, people will come together with their float gear and enjoy music and stunning visuals while floating around, free from gravity.
