THE HUMAN BEING HAS USED THE OCEAN AS HIS PERSONAL DUMP AND AS AN INEXHAUSTIBLE SOURCE OF RESOURCES, IF WE CONTINUE AT THIS RATE, BY 2050 , IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THERE COULD BE MORE PLASTIC THAN FISH IN THE SEA.
126 TONS OF PLASTICS PER DAY
MARINE SPECIES REDUCTION
50-85% of the planet's oxygen is generated by phytoplankton in the oceans. Spain throws 126 tons of plastic into the sea every day . In 40 years we have lost 39% of the world population of marine species. The seabird population has declined by 70% since the 1950s . Our oceans are changing at a rate never seen before. Rising temperatures, acidification of the water, eutrophication, loss of biodiversity, change in marine currents and a single person responsible, the human being.
It is paradoxical to see how we are treating an ecosystem that keeps us alive by providing us with the air we breathe and regulating the planet's temperature. If we don't act, soon there will be no turning back.
With this collection we have collaborated with the Parisian artist Samuel Eckert to reflect, through his sarcastic designs, several of the problems that affect our oceans and seas. From the impossible date between an octopus and a garbage bag to the gangsters of the ocean who are there to remind us that the plastic we use on land ends up in the sea.
Myopic since the age of 2 and a half years, he has a particular vision of our world, trying to play with shapes and words as well. He juggles between different practices and different supports (from mural painting to skin, through paper or canvas) he mixes his personal work with commissions for various clients: advertising agencies, magazines, children's associations, small and large companies, brands of clothes and others.
Not to mention the various workshops that he carries out with children and adults, building projects that combine micro-narration and collective work.
