University College London Sustainability Awards

This year, I was commissioned to produce the 2018 Sustainability Awards for University College London. The designs were inspired by the concept of ‘future fossils’, exploring the longevity of plastics and what this pervasive material will tell archaeologists of the future about us. Every tile has been impressed with plastic flotsam found on the UK coastline, delivered by the tides to tell our story on the high water mark of any beach.

In developing these designs for the Sustainability Awards, I have married two timescales – that of the beautifully intricate prehistoric creatures which formed oil millions of years ago and the plastics which make our single use lifestyle possible.
