Pam Longobardi is an artist, environmentalist and Professor of Art at Georgia State University.
In 2006, after discovering the mountainous piles of plastic debris the ocean was depositing on the shores of Hawaii, Pam began collecting and utilising plastic as the primary material for her artwork in a project called Drifters. Now a global collaborative entity, the initiative has removed tens of thousands of pounds of plastic debris from environments and shores across the planet and transformed them into artworks that are displayed in social spaces and galleries around the world.
Pam’s work has been featured in publications like National Geographic and been exhibited at The Venice Biennale.
