Global artwork built from recycled plastics

By Anthony Clark

Posted 8 September 2011 11:59 am GMT
A sculpture made from Stokbord recycled waste plastic is the centrepiece of an Olympics-inspired art education project. The 1.4-metre sphere of schoolchildren’s silhouettes was cut from board material more commonly used for walkways, fencing, cable protection and animal pens.

 

The sculpture is the work of Brighton-based artist and graphic designer Nick Sayers, who selected Centriforce’s Stokbord plastic sheet to create the piece with pupils at Cherrywood Primary School in Farnborough.

 

The children modelled for their silhouettes in national costumes from as far and wide as Nepal, Albania and Ghana. Nick then had their outlines machine cut from Stokbord and the children helped sand and bolt the pieces together into a lattice, forming the final spherical structure.
