‘A Hundred Miles’ is a kind of diary for me. Like most people, I pick up a lot of paper in my daily life and most of it is thrown away afterwards. For this installation, I’ve kept the wrapping paper from Christmas and my Birthday, Work rotas, magazines and flyers – mostly Tate ones, so they are a personal reflection of the exhibitions I see daily.
I’ve used baby shoes as for me, they represent early stages of thought and naivety over waste.
I’m hoping people will stop and think about how much paper they touch and abandon.
As part of ‘De Junk Re Junk’ Williamson Art Gallery, Wirral until 7 July 2013.
