“The majority of the pieces I used were old forms of communication – books and records. These obsolete forms, replaced by the internet and digital downloads, are given new life and can communicate new meaning as new adornments for the body.”
This piece is made from vinyl records, an encyclopaedia, a CD holder and a serving platter.
Recycling Art Competition
