EXTINCTION - NO LAUGHING MATTER

Media: Acrylic on wood, populated with approx 1250 nitrous oxide canisters

Dimensions: 1200 mm diameter

Year: 2019

This installation uses the symbol designed by East London graffiti artist ESP and I will respect his request that the symbol should not be used for profit. The artwork uses many rusty, squashed and imperfect canisters to represent species that are dying out. The unpopulated holes represent what has already been lost. I am looking for somewhere to install this piece on loan. If anyone has ideas for displaying it in a prominent indoor setting that will help to publicise the XR movement, please contact me via the link on the contact page.
