Two Steps Forward 2010

Under Construction

Steel, polystyrene, laminated plywood, concrete

This is a piece that I created in my studio after a period of noticing large amounts of construction work occurring in London and the vast amount of cranes that could be seen on the skyline. It got me thinking about our built environment and how nature is effected by our human made urban environments, and contemplating where birds and other animals find refuge and shelter amongst our urban landscape and infrastructure.
