An Unnatural Journey
Monday, April 13, 2020, 2:30PM
Dixon Education Building

Enjoy a visual journey of Mandy Barker’s stunning photographic work that combines science with the issue of marine plastic pollution. Barker, who 10 years ago first witnessed the increasing amount of man-made plastic debris washing up on shorelines, will describe how and why she presents the recovered objects with the intention to engage the viewer through aesthetics, then to raise awareness, shock, and disturb through text and information.
