To celebrate Earth’s 2000 revolutions around the sun I decided to make a series of sculptures using 2000 elements in each work. These sculptures were made in various locations including wild beaches, volcanic vents and mountainsides. The natural materials¬†used were found at each site and returned to the natural system from which they came.

The process of collecting and counting the 2000 items became a kind of mantra for Philippa and I as we progressed.

The series of 12 works was published as an international calendar and several of the works are available as limited edition prints.
