Solastalgia describes the feeling of loosing ones comforting home to environmental change that is out of ones control. The feeling of homesickness while still being at home. Feeling comfort and belonging by the ocean the destruction of the marine environment causes distress and a feeling of powerlessness.
The fishing industry has one of the most severe impacts on our oceans. The habitat of many north sea creatures had to give way to humanitys destructive fishing methods.

This model is a mergence of elements of manmade fishing gear and the organic shapes and textures of the seahorse.
