The Great Pacific
Garbage Patch (GPGP)
An interactive poster raises awareness about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP)
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a massive collection of trash floating in the North Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and California. It was first discovered in the early 1990s and accumulates garbage from North America, Latin America, and Asia due to wind and ocean currents. Small actions can help us reduce this environmental issue and create a better world together.
To inspire action, I created a poster with two layers. Each "Patch" on the poster contains essential information about GPGP and the exhibition, accompanied by an image of garbage. When people remove these small patches, a hidden message is revealed: "The Ocean Needs Us." This design encourages engagement and raises awareness about our impact on the environment.
