The Turnpike Art Group have been given special permission by Veolia Environmental Services to enhance a local trade waste unit - introducing the genius of William Morris into an urban landscape. Our proposal is to adapt his Golden Lily (1899) wallpaper design, and apply this to a section of wall, simultaneously overlaying this beautiful motif onto the large shop waste container which stands before it. This project adheres to our core TAG ethos of celebrating and re-introducing heritage artefacts within the urban environment.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our aim is twofold - to soften the impact of waste management within a residential street, and also to introduce a sense of visual enhancement, by incorporating the work of one of the single most influential designers of the nineteenth century - William Morris.
With The William Morris Gallery located in nearby Walthamstow, our desire is to introduce an element of arts education, as we diffuse the visual impact of rubbish into a positive experience.
Call it Waste management with wallpaper. Or Golden Garbage.
