Re-Coverage considers waste and human sprawl. There is a scientific suggestion that humans are a geo-physical force effective at influencing the Earth’s atmosphere and rock strata. Human activity such as relentless land development, waste accumulation and mass species extinction adds weight to the suggestion that we have entered a new geological epoch: The Anthropocene.

This large sculptural installation consists of 57 irregular shaped glass objects formed by slumping fragments of broken glass. The glass, reclaimed from my immediate urban environment, forms a defined space of compressed waste material on the galley floor.
