Public Sculpture and Urban Mining
Urban Mining emphasises the potential of cities, the human habitat and the built environment as a source of raw materials, extracting and refining anthropogenic resources. Engaging public art in this space can raise awareness and evidence viability. It can create innovative design solutions – continuing the visual and material language of the City through connecting the past, present and future -, build community connections and support carbon reduction and a greener approach to production.
Practice-based research leading to a virtual exhibition and real-world public realm interventions.
