Paper Life! Ocean
Paper Life! Ocean
Over the past year I worked on a series of marine animal sculptures and today, on World Ocean Day, I would like to tell you more about this project. This is a project very close to my heart. I created these sculptures to call attention to the fact that our oceans and the wildlife dependent on them are under threat in so many ways right now.

This project was funded by an artist grant as part of the NRW Corona aid.

The oceans are of immense importance to life on earth. They are storing heat and CO2 and have a major impact on the weather and climate.

The seas offer a habitat for countless living things. Researchers suspect that up to 10 million species live in the oceans. Many of them are still unexplored.

But the oceans are exposed to massive problems such as pollution, overfishing and the climate crisis, which endanger the fragile balance of the sensitive ecosystems.
