When coral becomes stresssed through pollution or the rising sea temperatures caused by climate change the algae that gives the coral it's amazing clours abandons they corals tissue leaving it prone to disease, taking away it's main food source and most noticably giving it a bleached appearance.

 

Based on the destruction of coral colonies I have simplifed the coral forms to very basic shapes, stripping them of their colour, only retaining their beauty to demonstrate what we are losing. This project is in the developing stages.
