Shaft, 2018

Mining has always been associated with hardship and dirty, difficult work, where the rewards are often considered worth the effort and risk. The luxury of the energy we use that is generated from coal-fired power is hard to resist, as is the black petroleum which fuels our cars and is the raw material for the manufacture of materials on which we have grown dependent. Every mining industry is plagued by issues around environmental destruction, corruption and human exploitation. With the improvement in batteries (made from mined lithium) solar power is becoming a viable alternative.

This work uses an end product of the petroleum industry, in the form of discarded clear plastic packaging, to simulate a shaft of light breaching the rainforest canopy.

Discarded clear plastic objects.
