Artist and curator Marina DeBris trained as a graphic designer at Rhode Island School of Design and became interested in the issue of marine pollution after moving from Bondi to Los Angeles.

She began collecting trash during her daily runs on Venice Beach, simply in an effort to maintain its beauty. Fuelled by a growing concern for the ocean’s health, she began to turn the trash into art in hopes of drawing attention to the alarming developments she was seeing washing up on the beach and reading about in the news.
