A pilgrimage to the major Amazon warehouses in the UK. By shedding material possessions and carrying only what I required to survive I embarked on a low carbon footprint bicycle journey considering ideas related to mass consumption, climate change and plastic pollution.
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.
Initially visualised and exhibited at Ugly Duck, London, from 25-27th May 2018, as part of the Lumen exhibition Cosmic Perspectives. 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.
