I LOVE Östersjön

In this moly with a climate-theme I have done two pictures about the pollution of the Baltic Sea - my neighbour! In the textile part the macroperspective and in the paper part the microperspective. Nodularia Spumigena is one of the cyanobacterials that causes the toxic bacterial bloom that prevent us from swimming in the sea the hotest days in the summer. "I LOVE Östersjön" (=I LOVE the Baltic Sea) is the name of an exhibition at the local museum about the Baltic Sea.

I'm excited that you took my invite to go over the "borders" in to "my" part of the fabric - it makes the different parts work together. I love the thoughts about micro & macro!

We have to take care of our seas and oceans!
I left my summerhouse by the Baltic Sea last week, my neighbour is like a second livingroom(At the last plunge the watertemperature was 12C...NICE!)
Terrible thought if we all can´t use the sea in the future...
