Rusty Life / Breakwater

Rusty Life
Rusty Life

This design is a polyhedron geometry breakwater, which represents the polyhedron impact of ocean pollution. It uses rusty materials to show that the ocean is polluted just like the earth is rusted. On the breakwater, the samples of marine creatures damaged by ocean pollution are displayed, hoping to warn the tourists who come to the seaside. The ocean is an interconnected whole. If a sea area is polluted, it will spread to the surrounding areas, and even the later effects will spread to the whole world.
