Large Scale for Pam Longobardi

Pam Longobardi removes debris from beaches and turns them into large scale installations to remind us of the impact our throw away culture has on the planet. Her current focus, marine debris, such as the massive webs of non-biodegradable fishing nets that wash upon shore. "I was both amazed and shocked by the visual impact of the astonishing array of marine debris I encountered," she writes on her website the Drifters Project.

When asked in an interview with Coastal Living, what's been the most positive outcome of her work. Pam says, "People who have told me that they began recycling after seeing my exhibit." I'm happy to say that I do recycle, it actually has become mandatory in our town a few months ago!

Pam Longobardi's exhibits travel worldwide, and you can learn more here.

  1. I live on the water and the things I see washed up on my boat ramp disgusts me to no end. I praise Pam for her work.

  2. My ex does sculpture from this beach rope and drift wood. But I've never seen anything like what this artist does. Incredible visual impact...

  3. This article (Coastal Living) was so interesting. I admire Pam for her work. In my area of the coast, I rarely see nets, etc., but the debris left on the beaches by the sunbathers is disgusting. Even with convenient trash receptacles, plastic cups/bottles/wraps and paper trash, plus cigarette buts and more is left on the sand. I get so mad.....Not only is this unsightly, it's a health concern for the coastal birds and other wildlife which roam at night.

  4. What a wonderful way to bring attention to those who just don't think about the impact their garbage brings to our environment.

    Jane live just north of me a bit and I couldn't agree with her observations more! We've have so many of our precious creatures rescued and taken to local sanctuary because of the carelessness of others. I always carry an extra bag on the beach just to pick up after others. Disgusting!

  5. What a great way to use debris from the sea, looks so bright and full of color! I am definitely going to check out her works of art mroe. :)

  6. Wow! Amazing what people can think up!

  7. Great post. Thatis always one of my biggest concerns. It is disgusting!

  8. Fishing nets can really wreak havoc on marine life. Hopefully people who see Pam's work will realize the negative impact of their trash making its way onto the beach and into the water.
