Yes, more garbage. Out to Sea? The Plastic Garbage Project, currently on show at the Museum for Design Zurich (Museum für Gestaltung Zürich) has been so popular that its run has just been extended to 28 October, 2012. The photos from the exhibition have certainly made their way onto the radar of the design community, and the actual exhibition is equally as striking. Out to Sea? is a balance between educating people about the volume and variety of plastic in the world's oceans and providing dramatic imagery detailing the toxic threat from this pollutant. Suitable for anyone from any background, this very special exhibition will also travel after it leaves the museum to other institutions worldwide. So do not miss! Out to Sea? will next be on view at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg from 20 December, 2012 – 31 March, 2013.
