The project

This beautiful somehow scary fish is the latest piece of art of Skeleton 3. It is made out of floatsom which our friends Joao Parrinha, Luis de Dios and Xandi Kreuzeder found at the beach. They call it Bin Tin, the “Oceancleaner”.

Why, because he has swallowed all kinds of litter. You can see different departements of it`s stomach are filled with cigarette butts, can´s, slippers and plastic bags.
