We’ve featured Sayaka Ganzincredible sculptures made from recycled materials in the past, and the artist just completed an amazing new installation at the Port Canaveral Welcome Center in Port Canaveral, Florida. “Embrace” is a two-story public sculpture made of trash collected from local beaches and household plastics that are typically thrown away. The underwater scene depicts blue whales, jellyfish, and flying rays made entirely from recycled materials. Ganz hopes that her work will inspire visitors to reduce plastic waste and consider its impact on the world’s ecosystems
