“Ocean Exodus”, the sculpture, is a “what if” scenario, dealing with the very real possibility of the oceans becoming too compromised to sustain a healthy ecosystem. Represented in the sculpture are various ocean life forms, including various fish, crustaceans, reptiles,octopus, plant life, and mammals. This sculpture is created as fantasy, however the premise is real. In this situation the ocean inhabitants are simply leaving, rather than being poisoned, over fished, and exploited out of existence. It is a call for the viewer to take action to prevent this. Imagine an ocean too toxic to sustain life. This sculpture is still in progress and may get much bigger than shown.
