Bloomberg Earth Day Installation (April 2012)

As part of Bloomberg London’s Earth Day 2012 programme, I was commissioned by Arts Co. to create an installation alongside illustrated info-graphics. I am often preoccupied by the idea of refuse, artefacts and pollution in an archeological sense within my work, especially in relationship to mythologies and pop culture references. These are materials I use to explore narratives around world history. ¬†In my Aquarium installation imagery from the pre historical, classical and the Industrial worlds collide submerged, to create a diorama timeline of humanity’s impact on the environment. I was particularly interested in working with images of the water bearer as a classical trope, the shocking scale and nature of the pacific gyre and the irony of how cleaning products, become pollutants at an intrinsic level within the natural world. The incredibly¬†talented Hollie Miller joined me to enact the role of The Water Bearer.
