In recent years, the amount of plastic in our seas and oceans has become an issue of increasing concern. Yet, let us not think that a piece of plastic discarded in the ocean leads a quiet, static life. Rather than staying put, each piece embarks on an impressive tour around the world, sometimes faster, sometime slower. Flying, drifting, swimming, this new ‘species’ crosses continents and oceans to turn up in the most remote places imaginable. With the help of some ‘specimens’ and an overhead projector, we create a short animated mini-movie.
