JUNK MAIL POSTMAN

This life-size sculpture of a postman is made from junk mail.  The sculpture was created for BBC1’s ‘That’s Britain’, which aired live at 8pm on Wednesday 23rd November 2011.  Michelle was invited to do something with the nearly 800 pieces of junk mail collected for the programme over three weeks by twenty households in Stoke Newington.  This illustrates the quantity of paper that is wasted on unsolicited advertisements.


Dimensions: 180 x 60 x 77cm.
