Plastic Fantastic?

I came across this video thanks to a blog post on Craft Blog UK and thought that it would be perfect for a Marvellous on Monday feature. Even though it isn't technically an interview, it IS a video shot by two very talented artists talking in depth about their work. I found it truly fascinating and hope you will too.

One Plastic Beach from High Beam Media on Vimeo
Richard Lang and Judith Selby Lang have been collecting plastic debris off one beach in Northern California for over ten years. Each piece of plastic Richard and Judith pick up comes back to their house, where it gets cleaned, categorized and stored before being used for their art. The couple make sculptures, prints, jewelry and installations with the plastic they find washed up, raising a deeper concern with the problem of plastic pollution in our seas.
