A low-carbon footprint bicycle journey around the UK and New Zealand considering the relationships between mass-consumption, plastic pollution and climate change. Along the way I visited seventeen UK Amazon distribution centres, spent a month at sea onboard a cargo ship, and visited sites of personal significance to reflect on the parallels between environmental and personal loss.
A pilgrimage to the major Amazon warehouses in the UK. I cycled a total of 2367 miles from 25th June to 29th September 2018, visiting Amazon warehouses at Bristol, Swansea, Tilbury, Hemel Hempstead, Dunstable, Milton Keynes, Daventry, Coventry, Rugby, Peterborough, Coalville, Doncaster, Dunfermline, Gourouck, Bolton, Altrincham and Warrington.
A journey on board the cargo ship Kerguelen. I sailed from Southampton UK on 14th November arriving in Port Klang Malaysia on the 11th December 2018. The ship passed through the Channel, North Atlantic, Mediterranean Sea, Suez Canal, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Arabian Sea, Persian Gulf, Laccadive Sea, Bay of Bengal and Malacca Strait.

The installation included a list of everything I own handwritten in ink on brown paper inherited from my father; a bicycle, camping equipment, tools and spare parts, all-weather clothing, notepad, pen, camera, and a net.
