The ETERNAL Experience

The focal point for the series is ETERNAL, a 60-foot-long jellyfish constructed out of plastic bags that is on display at the NAS Building. This sculpture by Maris Polanco points toward the issue of plastic in the ocean and asks what can we do about the problem collectively and as individuals?
