Sculpture from recycled materials, sometimes kinetic!
Published:
Mammalian Locomotion

Deep beneath the Earths crust Explorers have found the ruins of a little known and long dead civilization. Not much is known of this civilization, all we know is that they were wiped out by some cataclysmic disaster possibly of their own creation. This is the premise for Mammalian Locomotion, a sculptural exhibition by Tom Buckland exploring the relationship between the human race and technology. It features kinetic and non-kinetic sculpture all made from recycled materials.
