Since the publication of Beyond Drifting in May 2017, the issue of plastic pollution in the world's oceans has captured widespread media attention, and aside from some large corporations, people like us are making small changes in our choices about single-use plastic in supermarkets, and in our homes. Mandy continues her work to draw attention to this issue of global ecological concern.

Beyond Drifting: Imperfectly Known Animals encapsulates in miniature the much larger environmental problems of an imperfect world. This work presents a unique collection of plankton specimens related to pioneering discoveries made by naturalist JV Thompson in Cork Harbour during the 1800s. These recently found specimens are deceptive, and mysteriously conceal their true origin.
