Saving for the Future 2010


Saving for the Future is a work comprising slip cast ceramic money boxes in the shape of tetrapods in varying stages of being submerged. This work was inspired by the irony of two contrasting newspaper articles printed on facing pages; one describing a communities outrage at a proposed concrete factory opening in their region. The other describing the neccesary use of concrete tetrapods to fortify damaging erosion on the local coastline.
