The materials in this piece capture a sense of motion, even while immobile, perhaps a gentle inversion of the yoga concept of repose within a pose. It is a shrine to what cannot be caught: blue skies, time, all of the human-made foam being wantonly cast into the sea. Are we too late?

​I chose this work as a reflection of the March prompt image, but also in keeping with an ongoing concern regarding the overload of plastic in our seas and on our beaches.
