Sculpture project

The year started in the sculpture department. The brief was to use found materials. I made my way to the local transfer station aka the dump and found a petrol can of interest. The price of oil was in the news as was the concern of the long term fuel crisis.
My work developed into a site specific installation on the tarmac at the art school. The original label on the petrol can was reproduced as a mirror image on the other side and text was replaced with an Arabic proverb. The petrol can was set in a pile of sand with car mirrors in place to allow viewers to read the text in the mirrors.
