Beachwalk contains a collection of plastic pieces found walking the beaches in Oregon. Along those formerly pristine shores is non-biodegradable plastic litter, deposited there by currents and tides. While acknowledging the problem of plastics pollution this piece also reflects a fascination with finding such shards of our industrialized world and appreciating them for their forms, patina, and even charm.
