The focus of this art project is to highlight the high level of pollution in water bodies in Taiwan. The overall aesthetics of the installation cleverly draw the audience in, but when the viewer looks closer they will see the muck and trash of a busy city — cigarette butts, plastic, snail’s eggs and god knows what else.
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so how many is something captured in 3D worth? A lot, if this project is anything to go by. By making something that is usually sweet, refreshing and edible disgusting, the artists have made a clear an easily digestible (pardon the pun) statement: Water pollution is real and it is gross.
