Art Science installation

Bottle top colour wheels

Working with OuseLife artists and teachers from local schools, children made sculptures and installations for Ely Cathedral Science Festival 2017. The workshops I worked on were Recycling and Colour theory, using bicycle wheels with bottle tops to raise awareness of the amount of plastic in the environment.

Spirals and wheels of colour hung between 6 and 10 metres from the clerestory of Ely Cathedral and provided a fabulous opportunity to reflect the colours in the cathedral’s stained glass. Both will exist for centuries, glass will return to sand but plastic will never become part of a healthy eco-system, we need to be so careful of the materials we choose to make with.
