beach plastic prints: judith & richard lang

These prints of arrangements of Beach Plastic were collected from Kehoe Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore.

In 1999 Judith & Richard Lang began collecting plastic debris—carrying it away by the bagful— all from Kehoe Beach, a remote stretch of the Point Reyes National Seashore, in Northern California. Certain colorful items would catch their interest: milk jug lids, combs, toy soldiers, disposable lighters, cheese spreaders from lunch snack packs. They collected alot of multiples so that they could show what is happening in the oceans around the world.

The plastic is all washed up from the ocean, not left by beach goes. In their studio, they use the found detrius to make artwork including large sculptures, installations, photo tableaus and jewelry.
