“We have been rummaging through skips for some time now and have established this lens based project from our findings. The contents of each interesting skip becomes the backdrop of our images. What we find in these skips also inspires us to create a character that interacts with the discarded objects. Our characters are individual to all the different skips we use. We are attempting to address important environmental and ecological issues through our images. By choosing this subject matter we illustrate exactly what people discard, often depicting our throw away mentality. Due to the items being, frequently, in good condition, we began to ask ourselves whether we should all think more about recycling and re-using rather than throwing away and filling up the world’s landfills. We don’t want to preach…it’s just a thought.”
