Welded ship industry surplus steel, fabric and plastic

I originally made this work for Turku Vocational Institute Peltola Schoolhouse, after I started studying welding there. Reaching Out fit well for my exhibitions at the time (I’m only a human), so I exhibited the work by adding some cloth waste with it. The work deals with the state of our seas and our planet’s tough but silent request for help.
