Since 1999 Richard and Judith Lang have focused their attention on just 1000 yards of tide line where they have collected plastic washing ashore on Kehoe Beach in the Point Reyes National Seashore. Although the news about plastic pollution is dire, they bring the excitement of scouting for treasures and the pleasure of the creative life to an otherwise difficult topic.

Finding Meaning in the Mess August 19 - September 30 Bay Model, Sausalito
Since 1999 we have collected more than two tons of plastic trash from
1000 yards of Kehoe Beach along the Point Reyes National Seashore. We
have transformed this debris into engaging works of art that raise
awareness of the sheer variety and ubiquity of plastic pollution and its
impact in delicate marine ecosystems. We keep a blog to track our
adventures, to document what we are finding and to record how this one
beach has become a pinpoint describing the whole world. Visit the Bay Model to discover how we have found Meaning in the Mess.
