Our Daily Bread
22.05.19 – 08.06.19 

After seeing Chris Jordan’s photographs of dead albatross, their stomach’s full of shards of coloured plastic, I began to collect bread tags. All I thought of, at this stage, was that if I held onto these small plastic fragments they couldn’t be ingested by sea birds. 

Initially, the work aimed to present fifty- two proposals, made over a year, for three-dimensional works, reusing my collection of bread tags but later, began to incorporate different materials to further explore ideas around environmental degradation.

The ubiquitous use- by date is reframed as a call to action, while the reference to our daily bread, calls to account the tragic irony wherein our own nourishment may be inadvertently contributing to the destruction of a species from starvation.
