Sculpture: Plastic on Other.
Unaltered Marine plastic objects found on the UK coast, 1994-2014 applied to mixed materials.
This spherical sculpture called amnesia is a three dimensional representation of forgetting, or being forgotten and this relates to the objects used as they are all lost and forgotten before I reclaim them from the beach.
I collect beach plastic which I wash and sort by colour before creating my artworks, the pieces to create one piece such as this are often collected over several years of hunting. Please see my artist biography for more information about my work with found marine plastic.
This artwork is designed to be suspended from the ceiling by attaching a wire to the steel loop on the top of the piece.
It is a heavy piece of work - approx 10kg - and so a suitable fixing (not supplied) is required to take it's weight when attaching to the ceiling.
As with all artwork this image should be kept out of direct sunlight, environments of high moisture content, and extremes of temperatures.
