Thematic/contextual information

Created with the new 'Remade' material by Midton. The cone, by hand crystallised from the upcycled plastic shards, is to never decay and together with the teeth in it fossilise and freeze in time as a celebration of anthropogenic artificial. Plastic fillings in the teeth in plastics. Inspired by the ideas of a new spirituality and neo-nature.
