Imagine you were running along the beach and you came across 3 giant plastic bottle fish sculptures. What would you think? Well, if you were in Botofogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil that’s just what you would see.
The plastic bottle fish sculptures are made from salvaged plastic bottles. The installation was created for the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, which happened earlier this year in June. Rio+20 is the short name for the event, named for the 1992 Earth Summit that took place 20 years ago in Rio. The Rio+20 sustainable development conference was centred around coming together internationally to build a sustainable future.
With these plastic bottle fish sculptures the message is the medium. The installation was accompanied by a sign reading: recicle suas atitudes – recycle your attitude. 3 giant plastic fish sculptures on the beach highlighting plastic as an major oceanic pollutant. To draw even more attention the sculptures were lit up at night.
