CSI Kefalonia

In 2014, we want to help Kefalonia become a Plastic Free Island.

Plastic objects are the cultural archaeology of our time. They are a portrait of global late-capitalist consumer society, mirroring our desires, wishes, hubris and ingenuity. These are objects with unintended consequences. In an ongoing collaboration with the Ionion Center for Art and Culture, Drifters Project has been cleaning beaches and sea caves all around the incredible island of Kefalonia. In 2011, we collaborated with a sea turtle rescue project; in 2012, we cleaned a giant sea cave and made a short film, and 2013 was a collaboration between Drifters and Greek archaeologic project A.Sho.Re. and we made 2 more short films.

Drifter’s Project methodology is to approach the sites as a forensic scientist, examining and documenting the deposition as it lay, collecting and identifying the evidence of the crime.

Visited Horgota beach like we always do in May, this year the amount of rubbish on the beach was shocking, it's normally very clean. This group could do with getting down there.
