Finalist

Highly Commended

Recycled corrugated iron, 2x64x35cm

Wing explores the impact of urban development on the relationship between the man-made and natural world. As houses topple at the hands of developers and blocks of apartments replace them, gone too are the green spaces which provided sanctuary for the birds. Constructed out of discarded roofing iron, the feather becomes a metaphor for this displacement and loss.
