Abstract:

"Lavishly illustrated with informational graphics, paintings, sculptures, drawings and photography, this 212-page book accompanies the Gyre exhibition. Twelve essays by scientists, artists, writers and others explore the ways in which we are all connected -- both by trash and by the sea, and through our individual actions. Gyre: The Plastic Ocean looks at human consumption, modern materials and environmental change and their impacts upon one of the largest, most mysterious and critical components of our planet: the ocean. This book includes the history of plastic, startling facts, trash breakdown rates and things you can do to support trash-free seas." -- Anchorage Museum website.
