Art Description

Sculpture: Clay, Ceramic, Fabric, 3D Sculpting on Ceramic.

This sculpture is one of five 3-5 foot clay hands created in collaboration with the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury, for their community production 'The Right's of Others' 2015.

The hands were arranged on a platform inside a shipping container and tired at the fingers with 2 inch rope from the walls. Earth was placed around their bases and an artifitial light source projected their shadows onto the the containers interior.

The installation was intended to draw attention, and 'shed light' upon the many individuals (including many children) enslaved by corporately sub-hired private militias and forced to dig in mines to exstract minerals and metals used in western consumer products such as the Apple iphone.

Please note the measurements are approximate.
