Life at the Edge

Abandoned - Red Inside Colony


To highlight the idea of the fragility of life and hoping to contribute to its protection, I have made two pieces inspired by nature. One is full of life and brightly coloured while its twin is completely white, bereft of either life and colour so as to radiate the same idea of emptiness and lifelessness of a deserted shell or a husk, of what we are left with once life is gone.



With this work I aim to draw public’s attention to the cleansing of sea urchins from beaches to make these places more comfortable for tourists. Every year an immense number of these animals are expelled from their habitat in the vicinity of holiday resorts.
