FREE EXHIBITION by artist Lil Vischer | Open Daily until 25 June 2023 (10am - 5pm)
"In 2020, I started collecting rubbish from one tiny stretch of beach at Longniddry Bents because I was really interested by the different kinds of plastic gathering there. I decided to go back to the beach 100 times (interrupted by several lockdowns!) and make a note of what and how much I was finding. I ended up collecting 26,513 pieces of plastic! What surprised me was that it wasn't just crisp packets, bottles and other 'usual' litter I was finding but everything from fireworks to car lights, cable ties, toys, electric cables, buttons, pens...pretty much everything we use on a day to day basis seemed to be ending up in the sea. I decided to document my find by taking a series of photographs of the items according to type/source and the 61 resulting images can now be seen in an exhibition in the Seabird Centre at North Berwick, along with information on how these objects have ended up in our oceans and what we can do to help prevent further pollution."
