Exhibition: Edinburgh’s Shoreline

Edinburgh’s Shoreline  

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, the exhibition runs until Sun 23 Sept 2018

My work MARINE PLASTIC OF SCOTLAND [Lothian] littoralis: belonging to the shoreline, is on display at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. It is a collection of common plastic litter items found along Edinburgh’s shoreline. Their classification and display reflecting the herbarium’s taxonomy and preservation techniques. The analogy of colonising species echoes plastic’s living origin – oil. 

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh  opening times: 10.00 am — 5.45 pm                       Venue:John Hope Gateway , free entry.
