Disposable Ethic by Christin Paige Minnotte
Disposable Ethic illuminates an irony of industrial progress, specifically with respect to plastics in the ocean - the idea that mankind’s ability to transcend natural limits could seal its doom. It asserts the evolutionary irony that the human species’ gift of creative intelligence seems, in the case of plastic as a world changing innovation, at odds with humanity’s survival. Disposable Ethic is particularly about the intersection of the aforementioned creative intelligence as it relates to ethics in the case of plastic. It articulates that intersection of the beauty of creative intelligence and the tragedy of the unethical use of that intelligence.
