Final Project

My final Project is about Ocean Plastic Pollution and how it effects Marine Life, weather they are fish, turtles, or even mammals. The ocean is huge and its true, Plastic doesn’t go away, we are surrounded by plastic and these animals are getting effected by it.  We use plastic everyday its everywhere so we don’t understand where it goes once its gone. It ends up in the ocean and the problem here is that affects our economy, costing us untold dollars spent in beach cleanups, tourism losses and damages to fishing and aquaculture industries, which at the end of the day isn’t fair. This article also tells us more about how to solve this problem but i am putting attention more to the section called “A HEAVY TOLL ON WILDLIFE”

My intention for my shoot is to use a turtle and a couple more sea animals to represent what happens to them. I am going to place a turtle in a sand with plastic and stuff around it, having the turtle have plastic on himself showing how its tangled and how it effects him, he seems to be stuck. Another image is going to show a water bottle and inside the bottle will be sand dirt rocks and many different types of plastic with different Sea animals inside of it to show that plastic is taking away the life of these animals because they are stuck, nowhere to go and no one cans save them once they plastic inside of them, eating it or around them. Another image will have that the turtle will have plastic on its shell and its suppose to show that everywhere he goes plastic is going with him and he is in danger. Another image will show the turtle inside the water of bottle but a half bottle of water how he is inside of it with plastic surrounding him and on his mouth. Many images will be shot up close or over head.

About Jessica

I look for a different challenge every day. To me, everything I see is full of wonder. Visual is the reason why I am who I am; it brings everything to life and it’s the reason why art is so valuable in today’s society. I am experienced with Layout Design, Interactive, Photography, and Packaging Design. With these categories, I tend to evoke publication to life, with color-intention and typography to make the work appealing. I believe in simplicity and clean design that gets the message across. I have a great love for magazines, books, photography and environmental issues.
