Inheritance: A Mistake We Must Fix
2016, High School, Art
If you look around, anywhere, you can spot evidence of water contamination or ocean pollution. Such evidences are, for example, throwing away trash into the drains that are led to ocean, oil leakage in the ocean, over use of CO2 emissions and much more. These type of actions lead to contaminating ocean, where about 60 to 70 percent of our food intake are from. Why 60 to 70 percent? First of all, the water we drink are partially drawn out from the sea. Secondly, the marine organisms we often cultivate, such as, tuna, salmon, kale are impacted and contaminated from our very own action of pollution. In “Inheritance: A Mistake We Must Fix”, it portrays the cycle of pollution that gets back to us in our life. The oily and dirty looking ocean on the background shows the degree of how serious ocean pollution has gotten to. It is at the point where it cannot be solved at once but takes a long effort. The baby represents our future generation, very pure, fragile and innocent. They are not the convicts of this crime but they are also impacted by this through the water she is drinking. The bottle, held by an adult, is given to the baby. In the bottle there are several trash we can often spot out in our trash can or in some cases, in the ocean. It is that our current generation is hesitant to take full action towards this pollution which, like previous generation had done to us, we pass the problem to our next generation. Not only do we pass our problem to our next generation but the problem we created is negatively impacting our pure, fragile and innocent baby or the future generations. We must, right now, take full action to resolve our very own problem with our own hands before it gets to our next generation.
