'Throwaway' consists of three vertical lines of shank segments from old clay smoking pipes. Clay pipes were first smoked in the late sixteenth century and they were widely in use until the late nineteenth century. Clay pipes are a frequently found early example of our throwaway culture, as they were cheap to produce and were often soon discarded. Displaying these pipes that have been buried in the soil for so long is as literal a take on the 'Coming up for Air' theme that I could possibly have made. However, in the exhibition brief the participants were also encouraged to consider the theme of sustainability. In the years since the last of these clay pipes were discarded, our throwaway culture has hugely escalated. There is a terrifying gulf between these broken fragments and the highly toxic nature of much of what is nowadays dumped in landfill.
