After seeing photographs of albatross that had died after ingesting small plastic fragments I began to collect bread tags. I soon began to use them in the studio, responding to their muted colours and quirky shape that worked as a tessellation. These works assemble the bread tags as a series of screen shots from imaginary computer games. Their playful iconography is at odds with the sombre messages conveyed using potentially harmful single use plastics which continue to threaten species, some to the point of extinction.
