Recycled Seahorse Project

Spectacle Arts Piece made for Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council using recycled materials. This piece was made as part of "The Tide is Turning Exhibition" in DLR Lexicon in Summer 2019. The exhibition was to raise awareness of pollution in the ocean. It was also exhibited at Dublin Vegfest 2019. The piece ended up being around 2.2 metres tall. It was constructed by cutting out the projected shape of the seahorse from an MDF board. Holes were then drilled and loops were made in sections allow the body in order to create a 3D structure to build upon. Recycled bottles, caps and milk cartons were collected, cut up and heated in order to distort the shapes. The bottles and plastic was then strung up and down the body of the seahorse using fishing wire. This was a group project made by myself and Momo Willet O' Sullivan.
