Gyre II, Chris Jordan reconstructs The Starry Night out of 50,000 lighters to echo the number of floating pieces of plastic within every square mile of the world’s oceans. Within the series, the artist utilizes hundreds of thousands of plastic spoons, bags, and even shark teeth to symbolize the mass consumption and environmental negligence present in the world.
