USA trip – ‘Landfillart’ environmental project and Chicago

Whilst in USA recently, I took part in an environmental art project in which over 1000 artists around the world are creating a piece of art on a reclaimed metal car wheel hub.  The aim is to raise global awareness of the importance (and pleasure) of reusing/recycling and general issues surrounding climate change.  My piece – ‘Pod’ – was made from wires woven onto a scrap hub.  Have a look at the work displayed on the following website: www.landfillart.org

I also spent several days exploring Chicago – especially the city’s staggering architecture and art scene.  Here are a few of my favourite photos:
