Art portfolio- my work

This piece dates back to 2017, when I started hearing about the oceans warming up and coral reefs dying.

Now in 2022, according NASA “…​Yes,Β the ocean is continuing to warm. … To date, the ocean contains 90 percent of the heat from human-induced global warming, and the year 2020 was the warmest ever measured for the global ocean.

And today I heard about the sewage problem at the coast of Kwazulu-Natal and I hang my head in shame on behalf of the human race.

https://www.iol.co.za/dailynews/news/kwazulu-natal/watch-raw-sewage-remains-an-unsolved-problem-in-the-durban-harbour-as-the-ethekwini-municipality-faces-a-sewage-crisis-f3316e19-1cd2-44e5-aee3-af83c00b0c21

This is not acceptable, and it makes me extremely sad and mad.

On that note I present to you: “IN WARM WATER” which I should probably rename to : ‘IN HOT WATER’ because by the looks of it we ARE IN TROUBLE’.
