I’ve just delivered an unusual commission for Friends of Bradford Becks (F.O.B.B). It’s a collapsible ‘soft’ sculpture of a washing machine / house, complete with guttering, pipework and frogs! All the sides zip together, the roof is detachable and the whole thing folds into an artist portfolio so it can be easily transported.
Miss Connection, a rather glamorous plumber (AKA Irene Lofthouse, Actor), will be visiting local schools and using the sculpture to get across an important environmental message. Connect Right is an initiative to encourage everybody to plumb in appliances properly so that dirty water doesn’t poison our clean waterways and wild habitats. I’ve made her a glitzy apron to wear as she hosts an interactive game and hands out stickers.
I’ve included a few images of it in progress and delivered. Hopefully we’ll get a few images of Miss Connection in action.
Here is a useful ten point plan produced by F.O.B.B to help you sort out what goes where!
