The Great Wave is a classic image we see again and again, but artist Chris Jordan puts a new twist on it by recreating the unmistakable piece with 2.4 million pieces of plastic. His reinterpretation, entitled Gyre, is composed entirely of plastic collected from the Pacific Ocean. Jordan takes massive global matters like man-made environmental pollution and transforms it into a work of art. The idea behind his work is to awaken people to the problems we are all responsible for by exemplifying the colossal nature of the issue.
