Persistence (of Vision)

~ in the fields will talk about their working methods and previous art works, as well as their current research as Artists in Residence at the UCL Environment Institute on plastic pollution in the oceans.

As Artists in Residence at the UCL Environment Institute ~ in the fields are researching a variety of phenomena relating to plastic pollution in the oceans and ocean gyres. With a series of different art works they reflect upon the “awayness” of plastic garbage in the collective memory – once it is thrown away – and its persistence (as a rarely degrading material) in the oceans and on the beaches.

They have travelled to the Shetland Islands to find remote and beautiful beaches – each with a different affinity to plastic garbage.
