Image Statement: Ghost nets are lost fishing nets that continue to float in the oceans wreaking havoc on marine life. Flotsam is a net handmade from single use plastic bags. The “catch” in this net is plastic refuse collected in less than two months from my personal use, plastic collection walks, and a group of eco conscious contributors.
