The fifth annual Castaways Sculpture Exhibition was held under cloudy skies on the Rockingham foreshore in May 2012 and attracted large crowds who came to view the various artistic creations on display. This event highlights the importance of recycling and sustainability as all artworks in this outdoor exhibition must have a recycled component. The photos below are just a few examples of the way various artists have expressed their message about recycling and concern for the environment.
|Fish... and it was THIS big!|
Made from copper and aluminium, the artist's inspiration was from the sea and the enjoyment received from it, together with the wish that our coast remains unspoilt for future generations.
Made from steel, aluminium, plastic and stainless steel.
Years of over-fishing saw the demise of crabs in Cockburn Sound. Stocks have now recovered.
This recycled crab trap will ensure the survival of the species by not catching any crabs.
|A Snail with Tales|
Made from Aluminium, litho plate from 'The West Australian', rubber inner tube, and drink cans,
the snail writes a message about recycling with its tail.
|Cause for Concern|
Made from discarded plastic packaging and aluminium items attached to steel wire frames,
to convey the way our world is being polluted by packaging and discarded items that overwhelm life particles.
