When we pollute our oceans we pollute ourselves

'When we pollute our oceans we pollute ourselves' was one of the most interesting pieces that I had found in the AOI exhibition because of how the piece communicates the current issues of pollution. I am drawn towards how Pieter Van Eenoge addresses these issues through illustration as the images and symbols are clearly presented such as the fish within the mouth of a person in addition to the plastic rubbish within the fish's mouth. The method of utilising symbolism had come into my mind as it allows the communication of the piece to be much clearer which I personally think is important.
