In 2008 I had a solo exhibition at Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts in Townsville titled Chain Reaction. My aim was to experiment by combining upcycled materials and effects like domino effect, virtuous cycle and fractals. Whilst I was creating one of the artworks titled Ripple Effect from thousands of recycled plastic lids for the exhibition, I knew and wanted to really extend the use of this medium further.
I then began collecting more plastic lids from soft drink and milk bottles from family, friends and local community then began to join them together, with the same message of one different coloured lid. I was surprised and pleased to find the fabric like form the joined lids took.
