"Caught" seeks to create conversations about ghost fishing: the critical environmental issue where a significant number of plastic nets are lost or abandoned at sea, indefinitely floating and continuously entangling organisms. The wildlife ensnared in the reclaimed ghost net backdrop are painted white in the archetypal color of ghosts, conjuring haunting images of needless death. The fish are created from recyclable plastic materials reinforcing the negative impact of plastic pollution on Earth’s waters. Located above an audibly rippling creek, the piece is sound activated, evoking the presence of the ocean.
