Margaret Craig: Sea Islands Exhibit

October 4, 2019 - January 5, 2020

“My artwork is a contemplation on the ways we affect the plants and animals around us, and how we may be affected by them.

My most recent interpretation involves plastic, which I repurpose and evolve into creatures which might one day populate the congregation of trash in the ocean gyres. This is not without precedent. The bacteria, ideonella sakainsis, eats plastic. With this piece, conceived…
