Entitled ‘More Masks Than Jellyfish’, my final year project focuses on an aspect of the current Covid-19 pandemic; the casual disregard of PPE. This is rapidly becoming a global environmental problem with scientists estimating that there are now more face masks than jelly fish in the oceans.

The project itself is split into two distinct areas. Firstly, I ‘collect’ images of the coronavirus detritus in order to draw attention to it. Each image references the social distancing regulations and is shot from a meter distance. Secondly, in order to encapsulate the global reach of this potential environmental disaster, through Instagram, people from all over the world can contribute to the project through @more_masks_than_jellyfish page.
