Wolf Walk Darmstadt

The wolf image was found by looking at the street layout of the centre of Darmstadt so that the same walk can be made in the town by following certain streets. At no point on the wolf walk can the whole image be seen; this was inspired by the mysterious ancient Nasca Lines in South America depicting animal and abstract designs that can only be seen when viewed from the air. A group of students created the wolf costumes for local school children to wear.

recycled sculpture made from rubbish

Recycle ‘Cowboys to Astronauts‘. The sculpture is made from wooden objects and furniture that I found at the Exeter rubbish dump. Designed in a circular form to resemble tumbleweed the original individual objects can still be visually puzzled out of the rotating mass. Recycled objects include a ladder, table, chairs and a broom.

The sculpture was inspired by a seminar on the importance of recycling held at the University of Exeter. The seminar lead to a touring exhibition organised by the University and Exeter’s Enviro Hub to promote the cycle economy. Additionally I organising family workshops at the Enviro Hub (a recycle centre) turning rubbish into new Planets. The sculpture was later moved to the reception hall at RILD within the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
