archatlas: Environmental Installation in Sian Ka'an Washed Up is an environmental installation and photography project by Alejandro Durán that transforms the international debris washing up on Mexico’s Caribbean coast into aesthetic yet disquieting works. Over the course of this project Durán has identified plastic waste from fifty-three nations and territories on six continents that have washed ashore along the coast of Sian Ka'an, Mexico’s largest federally protected reserve and an UNESCO World Heritage site. He uses this international debris to create color-based, site-specific sculptures that conflate the hand of man and nature. At times he distributes the objects the way the waves would; at other times, the plastic mimics algae, roots, rivers, or fruit, reflecting the infiltration of plastics into the natural environment. More than creating a surreal or fantastical landscape, these installations mirror the reality of our current environmental predicament. The resulting photo series depicts a new form of colonization by consumerism, where even undeveloped land is not safe from the far-reaching impact of our culture of disposable products. The alchemy of Washed Up lies not only in transforming a trashed landscape, but in the project’s potential to raise awareness and change our relationship to consumption and waste.
