Mechanical Dioramas Crafted from Found Materials Illustrate the Impact of Ocean Pollution

Artist Nemo Gould was recently commissioned by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, to create series of mechanical dioramas from found materials for their upcoming exhibit "Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Octopuses, Squid and Cuttlefishes,” opening April 12, 2014. Each diorama has been intricately crafted using a variety of everyday objects such as door knobs, lamp parts, test tubes, electronic components and food cans. Gould's sculptures will help tell important conservation stories about the impacts that pollution, overfishing and habitat destruction have on these remarkable creatures.
