The title references the thread that joins the two parts of the earth and the fact that these endangered species (sea turtle, blue whale, cirroctopus, manta ray) are really hanging by a thread in extinction stats. The pile of blue garbage skirts the continents, forming a literal ocean of garbage.

I believe art isn't only meant for entertainment, it can also offer a more critical view of our modern society. In my artworks, I like to combine bright colors and shapes, creating an imaginative atmosphere, but also promote a reflection on our actions and their consequences, by using visual metaphors.
