Mutant sea creatures made with recycled plastic waste by local children

As part of the Telegraph Hill Festival this year local artist Angel McMahon was asked to lead a project with local schools and community groups highlighting the issue of plastic in our oceans.¬†Participants were asked to imagine what strange mutant sea creatures might evolve if we continue to pollute the seas. The creatures were made entirely from recycled plastic waste and were¬†suspended from the trees in the front courtyard of St Catherine’s Church.

They were illuminated at night by led lights which made them look very ghostly.
