The Odd Satisfaction of Collections

There is a fascination and compulsion in photographs of ordered collections.

Two people highlighting the environmental impact of the things we throw away:

Stuart Haygarth’s walked the length of the English South Coast and photographed the flotsam he found, organised by colour. Read an article about it in the Guardian (published April 2016) or purchase his book ‘Strand.’

I encountered a beautiful chandelier made by Stuart Haygarth at the Usher Gallery in Lincoln, made entirely of white plastic found on the beach. The picture below is from the milomade website.

Also posting about beach finds is the Lego Lost at Sea account on Twitter, who is locating some of the 5 million plastic bricks lost from a container ship in 1997.

Daniel Webb kept all of his plastic waste for a year, read about it in the Metro (published October 2018)

Life as Art:

Artist YellowYellow has developed a love for his favourite colour adn turned his life into a work of art. View his video on YouTube’s Archipel channel (posted September 2016).
