Artist: Amelia Batchelor
Materials: repurposed plastic objects
This installation is a collection of sculptural elements made of ordinary, everyday
items. With over 10 years of developing ideas and creating recycled artworks for exhibition,
the design and construction of this REEF-lection sculpture began with many hundreds of hours researching, collecting and experimenting with the raw form PLASTIC. In doing so, I have learnt much about the devastating effects on our earths oceans, and in turn have drastically reduced my own consumption.
This work is designed to excite, educate and hopefully provide people a space to reflect on
their behaviour and relationship to material that they come across in their daily lives. To Re-duce, Re-use and Re-purpose before Re-cycling.
I have experimented with textures, shapes and colours to re-create coral clusters and many of
its ocean creatures, and much like the actual coral reef formations in the ocean, this work is continuing to grow with a purpose.
