Humans desire for material objects has created a consumer culture & ‘throw-away’ society. This has resulted in excess debris overloading landfills and polluting our rivers and oceans. Negative2positive is a project dedicated to addressing this growing problem. The patterns and designs you see are created using the negative space of marine debris collected from beaches around the country. The negative of these objects are transformed into positive images with graphite pencil. Graphite is a simple raw material representing pure & basic earth. The objects are photographed and then discarded properly or recycled. Is there anyway you can create something positive out of a negative? Please share!

Earth as Art
One of the greatest ways to show appreciation and gratitude to our earth is to respectfully play & create with it. This ongoing project is a collaboration with the earth, using natural materials to create art on its surface. There is also a collection of photographs of amazing masterpieces Mother Nature composes single-handedly.
