Midway Albatross Sculpture

Look at the mess I made! What you are looking at is the sculpture I made for the Midway cause, I created a wire armature, covered it in kitchen paper towels then I used this as a base for claying.

I invited students to pick away at the clay albatross, revealing these endearing colourful plastics with which we are all too familiar, in the hopes to do a little story telling myself!

I hope this little project expresses in a small way how much I appreciate the giant effort that Chris Jordan and his team are putting into highlighting our human meddling in the environment on Midway Atoll.
