WEEE Man

‚Äč

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: A familiar adage that more and more of us are trying to incorporate into our everyday lives. Buckminster Fuller said that "waste is nothing more than an unharvested resource". With that in mind I took on the RSA commission to create The Weeeman a 7.2-metre high figure made from electrical waste. Computer mice, washing machines, tv's, mobile phones, vacuum cleaners and more represent the 3.3 tonnes of waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) that the average person in the UK will, currently, use in a lifetime. My aim was to create a dramatic,informative and witty piece,to raise public awareness and stimulate debate.
