Our art piece is intended to showcase how balloons are killing sea animals, like sea turtles, whale, and birds. We wanted to use re-purposed balloons in our piece to draw our audiences attention with brightly colored balloons and to create an actual sense of balloons. We made the animals out of mud stencils to connect the the natural resource of mud to wildlife.
