The marine menace from our homes

Kim Preston is a web designer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. She trained in fine art before entering a career in digital design, with a focus in recent years on photography.

In her series Plastic Pacific, Preston transforms seemingly innocuous household objects into sea creatures, making a stark point about the devastating impact of plastic and other pollution in our oceans.

The title refers to the Great Pacific garbage patch, a highly concentrated area of small pieces of floating plastic in the Pacific Ocean.
