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.
