JUDITH SELBY LANG & RICHARD LANG
Since 1999, the Langs have been visiting Point Reyes National Seashore, gathering plastic debris as it washes out of the Pacific Ocean. Like archaeologists, the Langs carefully collect and organize these artifacts of our time. The prints included in this show stood on their own as beautiful and arresting artworks; the surprise was in the realization that they were made of plastic debris. In this way, the Langs address our throwaway culture, the ubiquity of plastic, and our shared responsibility for environmental stewardship.
