An ongoing art project that lends a helping hand to resolve marine debris by collecting fishing ropes from the mangroves area, unraveling the plastic strands, and weaving them into textile art.
Ari engaged the collective efforts of artisans and others in the local community who had been made out of work to collect the plastic ropes from the beach, and to transform this unsightly detritus into works of art. Meticulously unraveled, the colourful ropes yield sturdy raw material to be transformed into evocative tapestries that celebrate traditional craftsmanship while evoking the shifting states at sea.
