Dying For Dinner

Dying For Dinner ~ 2011

This body of work was made in response to the issues of fishing discard and the effects on the oceans eco system.  Imogen went on to research the pacific soup; a gyre made entirely of waste. This lead to further investigation into our relationship with the oceans and was the basis of her second year degree project. The final piece was an installation made from a collection of precious bead like objects made in both ceramics and blown glass. Each element told a different part of the narrative.
