We worked with UWE Green Leaders to support their messages and awareness campaigns for the Green Awareness Week at the Frenchay Campus today. It was a rainy day, cold and rather miserable… after such a lovely summer I think it is catching us all a bit by surprise!
Pete Margerum and Annali Alletha Grimes co-created the Flying Fish of Frenchay with the UWE Green Leaders. The plastic and bottles were collected after an evening’s consumption at the local campus bar (a pound a pint) we only managed to perhaps use half of the materials. Even though UWE recycles all these plastics, you do wonder if there are alternatives to explore where people can have one cup per night, pay a deposit and for it to be re-used…
Today also showed again, with these type of art projects – you need to be flexible and adaptable to the environment, and really just turn up and be present, with no attachment to the outcome. All the ideas and concepts and previous scoping and stuff were thrown out of the window with the unpredictable weather, and well I think we delivered awesomely.
