The wide stripes of plastic accumulation in marine waters are alluded to by an inverted map of vast areas of the planet, where only the oceans - covered with pearls of multi-colored plastics produced in China and sewn one by one on the fabric - are represented. This simple action suggests that at this rate of plastic production and accumulation we will arrive at a moment in which it will no longer be possible to recognize the subtle line separating the natural from the artificial, artificiality being increasingly the protagonist as the technological industry in capitalist society progresses at a much faster speed than the civility of its population.
