Buffalo, Syncerus caffer & local flora. In 2011, I took a series of images for my Animal Thanet project called Pegwell Safari – down on the abandoned concrete apron of the former Pegwell Bay Hoverport in Thanet, Kent. These images formed part of a postal art project.
Some of the images show the cooling towers & chimney of the former Richborough Power Station, which were demolished by explosives at 09.07am on 11th March 2012.
These images consider & reflect wider concerns I have for the natural world, particularly focussed on the lives of its wild animals, conservation, loss of habitat, diminishing numbers, poaching, extinction and callous exploitation, which holds a mirror to our humanity. We may soon only have plastic versions of our wild neighbours to play with. The last decade has witnessed the slow & horrible realisation that our negative impact on the planet and particularly our plastic pollution of almost every environment, is a catastrophe for the world around us. #thanetcoast#animals#plasticanimals#conservation#thanet#ramsgate#pegwellbay#hoverport#plasticpollution#poaching#habitatloss#naturalworld#environmental#collections#diorama#animalnerd#faunaflora#richboroughpowerstation
What if you could visit a museum any time you wanted? Better yet, you don’t even have to brave traffic to get there, and…it’s all for free?
Ayala Museum just launched their cool new app, making their museum collection available to anyone, wherever you are!
How exciting for children who don’t have easy access to this museum! They can now also see everyone’s favorite exhibit; The Dioramas of Philippine History. Or marvel at the museum’s gold collection, and learn about how skilled our ancestors were in creating jewellery. So many possibilities for homeschoolers or teachers to add to their lessons through this app. .
Visitors of the museum are also lucky, as they can play the @mystery_manila game which is included in the app. .
The @ayalamuseum app is free, and available on IOS and Android. Details on manilaforkids.com. Link in bio.
