From Cowboys to Astronauts - exhbition from waste material

"I’ve often heard people say: ‘I wonder what it would feel like to be on board a spaceship,’ and the answer is very simple. What does it feel like? That’s all we have ever experienced. We are all astronauts on a little spaceship called Earth." - R. Buckminster Fuller I am taking part in an exhibition entitled From Cowboys to Astronauts . It takes place at The Enviro Hub, Devon Contract Waste in Exeter, from Monday, April 20 till May 24 2015. We, the artists from Devon, present objects, installations, visual art, etc., made from waste. The meaning of it is to promote the concept of a circular economy – a regenerative economic system where materials and energy from products are recovered and put back into the system instead of simply being disposed of. The initiative for this exhibition came from the  Centre for Alternative Materials and Remanufacturing Technologies (CALMARE) , a business technology centre partly funded by the ERDF, based at the University of Exeter.
