|Ice, found plastic, miniature figure|
@nikiturner.art has ‘been drawn to all the recent discoveries of disposed plastic found in the far corners of the globe’, as well as the tonnes of plastic that have ended up frozen into the Arctic over the past few decades.
In ‘Long After We’ve Gone’ (set of ice pieces), the artist responded to the devastating impact of plastic on our oceans, as well as the impact of global warming. The ephemerality of ice contrasts with the permanence of plastic in our planet. The plastic used was repurposed by the artist from finding it discarded on the pavements of Walcot Street.
