Beirut bottle shark goes to the rescue of Kfaraabida

Rami Chahine

Occasion: Protest against the privatization of the public beach. Idea: All maritime sports communities had agreed to take part in this protest. My plan was to take part in this on a shark made of upcycled material,as an ironic symbol of the ongoing destruction of the lebanese coastline. Method: Using rope, water bottles and gallons and a wooden frame.The process was documented step by step and shared online.
