#cocktail umbrellas inhabiting oil drums

As part of Chemical Archipelago I want to use oil drums and cocktail umbrellas. In the archipelago cocktail umbrellas represent christmas tree worms (Spirobranchus giganteus), these worms inhabit coral reefs on planet earth. Oil has devastating effects on the oceans in many ways from microscopic plastic particles to oil spills. in the chemical archipelago cocktail umbrellas have found a way of utilising discarded oil drums to build vast protected colonies…I am currently locating some of these inhabited oil drums and will update this page with photographs soon
