“Bottletop Cluster”.

by timpughartist

“Bottletop Cluster ” was created at St Bees beach in Cumbria in May 2016.I was horrified at the sheer amount of plastic waste deposited on the tideline and yet seduced by the attractive bright colours of the bottletops. To highlight how out of place the colours seem in a beautiful natural location I chose a pristine beach location at St Bee’s to further illuminate the contrast between man made and natural materials. I found an appropriate boulder in which to attach the bottletops I collected and decorated half the boulder to convey the colour contrast and highlight the profound difference of the products. I attached the tops using blue tack and after photography, dismantled the intervention and took the bottletops home to use for future projects.
