Nautilus - Trappings


Ghost nets are derelict fishing gear that has been lost, dumped or abandoned. The image is initially
benign and ethereal, floating gracefully through the open sea. However, a more malign consequence 
becomes apparent. A perpetual moving killing zone, they are ubiquitous in our oceans and a major 
cause of plastic pollution. The image depicts a nautilus shell, a logarithmic spiral drawn as an entwined ghost nets trapping the fragments of plastic which end up in the ocean.
