About the exhibition

The Inconvenience Store is set up exactly like a regular convenience store. The only difference is the store is filled with items found washed up on the beach.

These items are typical things found at a convenience store: water bottles, sunglasses, beach toys, candy, soda, thongs, swimming/surf/snorkel gear... and so on. All of these items have been found on local beaches and repackaged using materials found in trash bins or on the street. Each is labeled with a tongue in cheek title and description.

The display shows the public just how much of our daily items end up in the ocean.

The installation has won 4 awards, including the People's Choice Award at 2017 Sculpture By The Sea.
