Entity is inspired by the ocean and by the organic matter that exists within its waters. Fluid and ever changing water is the source of life that defines us as living organisms. These works are a statement about the ability to create synchronicity between two opposing materials. Fragile in their appearance, they are surprisingly durable, the result of the interaction between their properties. Created out of woven plastic thread obtained from recycled PET bottles and fused glass needles, they allow us to consider the nature of our current environment and the colossal amounts of discarded plastic perpetually polluting our oceans.
