Dahlsen's Made in China

 

Australian Artist John Dahlsen makes sculptures and collages  from plastic beach litter which he sorts by color. 

“My creative medium shifted from abstract painting to working as an environmental artist, as a result of an artistic accident during the mid 1990’s. I was collecting driftwood, on a remote Victorian Coastline, with the intention of making furniture and stumbled upon vast amounts of plastic ocean debris.”  ~ Dahlsen
