Entanglement is a series of images that explore the relationship between human beings and waste plastic. Sourcing waste plastic recovered from construction sites, movie sets and back alleys, Michael has commissioned the design and construction of costumes and set pieces for this moving portrait of a human culture.
He is seeking to raise $5000 to help with the production and exhibition of this work at Vancouver Science World.

SURFRIDER FOUNDATION - VANCOUVER CHAPTER
We are the Vancouver chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a global environmental non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
Our Vancouver chapter is 100% volunteer run by everyday people like you.
Founded in southern California in the early eighties, Surfrider Foundation started with a couple of surfers concerned about the possible destruction of their favourite wave. Since then it has grown to a network of chapters around the world that believe global challenges can be addressed through local grassroots actions.
We’re more than just surfers. We’re a community of beach and ocean enthusiasts who share a common vision of healthy and accessible oceans and coastlines, for now and for generations to come. We play an active role in the Vancouver community through outreach and education programs. We create opportunities for activism on issues of ocean and coastal pollution.
GREAT CANADIAN SHORELINE CLEANUP - WWF and Vancouver Aquarium
In 1994, a small team of employees and volunteers at the Vancouver Aquarium decided to clean up a local beach in Stanley Park to help protect the city’s shorelines. They submitted the data collected during this event to the International Coastal Cleanup, a global program managed by the Ocean Conservancy. By 1997, 400 volunteers were participating in 20 sites across British Columbia as part of the Great BC Beach Cleanup.
In 2002, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup emerged as a national program, providing all Canadians the opportunity to make a difference in their local communities. Cleanups started appearing in every province and territory, and by 2003, more than 20,000 volunteers were taking part.
Over the following years, the program continued to expand its reach and influence, aided by the support of sponsors, donors, and partners (such as WWF Canada, who became a full partner of the Shoreline Cleanup in 2010). Public support and interest in the program also grew as Canadians gradually became more aware of the harmful effects of shoreline litter on both fragile aquatic ecosystems and people.
In 2011, the Shoreline Cleanup celebrated its 18th anniversary with more than 56,000 volunteers, and piloted the first spring cleanup for school groups in British Columbia. Today, it is recognized as one of the largest direct action conservation programs, as well as the most significant contributor to the International Coastal Cleanup in Canada.
