Gyre

Pete Burkeet

United States
Still Image Award

Gyre is a digital collage inspired by the Great Pacific garbage patch. It is made of oil paint scraped off a paint palette and arranged to match an image of a whirlpool. I am greatly fascinated by gestures like the one the human race makes when it pollutes it's water supply like it is painting the Earth oil and plastic.

Hardware and Software Used:

Canon camera, oil paint, Adobe Photoshop.
