‘I found this lump of plastic in a field near to where I live in West Wales. It looked like a ‘heart’ or a ‘continent’. I felt the object was a metaphor for farming culture and how plastic is becoming ingrained in our earth. The red, white and blue colours also resonate with Britain’s position as one of the most nature depleted nations on earth’.
