I first encountered the work of Pam Longobardi when I came across this sculpture she created in collaboration with Joe Peragine and Craig Dongoski about a mile from my house. It’s called The Water Bottle Art Project:

I then came across her in the Atlantan, who describes her much better than I can:

Not content to just observe, Atlanta artist, Georgia State Professor and avid surfer Pam Longobardi acts. She crafts powerful artworks from the soup of plastic waste she finds floating in enormous trash islands or washed up on beaches, bringing them into the white box settings of international galleries.

If eco art is your thing, I have a feeling her upcoming book will be one you will want for your shelves. It comes out this fall, but you can pre-order it here. To see more of her Drifters Project, click here.
