Ghost Nets of the Ocean: Au Karem Ira Lamar Lu. Voices for the Sea from Australia's Torres Strait Islanders
Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Asian Civilisations Museum, this book presents the story of how artists from Erub Island in the Torres Strait, Australia, have turned "ghost nets" - abandoned plastic fishing nets - into works of art. These artworks raise awareness of ocean pollution, and specifically the harm these nets cause to marine wildlife. Profusely illustrated, the book also documents how several schools in Singapore and Australia joined the project to create their own artworks from plastic ocean debris.
