A Merman’s SOS
2017, High School, Art
Each time when I think of ocean pollution, I see a fish in my mind struggling in water surrounded by garbage. Just like I what I express in my artwork, a fish is trapped by a net full of plastic wastes, metal cans and toxic batteries. Although this trash is inevitable from human daily life, it can easily lead to the deaths of fishes through the human action of throwing these waste on the beach or directly into the ocean. In other words, we can save thousands of marine lives simply by picking up trash on the beach and if possible in the ocean. Above the net, there is a scene of factory chimneys releasing industrial waste by a sea, and the water is muddy and dirty. This further implies that it is imminent for us to take actions to stop endangering marine organism. At this moment, a fish is crying for help. If each of us give it a hand, more lives can be saved. It is our decision. I am ready to save lives. Are you ready?
