In what we would call performance art, more than fashion designs, Sydney artist Marina DeBris transforms garbage found in the ocean or washed up on the beach into intricately constructed garments. As a campaigner against ocean pollution, she hopes through her art she can show how ‘the waste we create keeps coming back to haunt us’. DeBris’s photographs and collection of wearables, Beach Couture: A Haute Mess, is exhibiting at the Bondi Pavilion Gallery at Sydney’s Bondi beach .
Look closely. This minidress is made of shredded tennis balls and doggie bags found along Sydney’s beaches and dog parks. The beautiful photograph was taken on Tamarama beach in Sydney.
