My lantern artwork illustrates the enchanting realm of sea creatures, meticulously crafted from repurposed materials. Each piece is a testament to the urgent need for ocean conservation, urging us to reject ocean plastic. Through my art, I aspire to inspire sustainable choices and foster a good relationship between humanity and the seas.

We made a lantern in the shape of a mooncake which is associated with the Mid-autumn Festival. The lantern was inspired from the idiom “花好月圆” symbolizing blooming flowers and a bright moon. My lantern depicts the celebration by eating mooncakes, sipping tea and moon gazing.

Sustainability is important to protect our oceans and the many beautiful sea creatures living in them. We created a lantern made of recycled fruit wrappers, plastic bottles and a bowl. It depicted fishes and a jellyfish living in the ocean. Every small action will contribute to making our oceans cleaner and healthier for these animals.

I got my inspiration from a coin which has a double-sided print. My lantern depicts earth being polluted with trees and animals dying on one side while the other side shows earth being healthy and thriving, with animals and trees flourishing. We need to make a choice to love our planet before it's too late.
