Film & Handmade Gowns 

by Audrey Billups

Maui-based filmmaker & dancer was inspired by the power and fragility of our Ocean.

Oceans Apart is her passion project that weaves together her art forms of dance, film, and design as a way to stand up for our abundant Blue Planet.
The film intends to bring people back into their own innate connection to the Ocean.
To our Earth.

We are in the midst of a Plastic Pandemic. 
Every year, about 8 million tons of plastic waste find their ways into our oceans, killing the wildlife and spreading harmful toxins.

That is roughly one garbage truck dumped,
every second of every day.

Through the eyes of the artist...

the trash

Out in the world

the work

“The ocean touches you with every breath you take, every drop of water you drink, every bite you consume.
Everyone, everywhere is inextricably connected to and utterly dependent upon the existence of the sea.”
Sylvia Earle
