CARNABY’S BRAND NEW VIBRANT SUMMER INSTALLATION
July 6 – September 13
Carnaby welcomes a brand new installation this Summer made from recycled plastic. Working with recycling brand Are You Mad, the installation will provide a vibrant feature in Carnaby Street and Newburgh Street, launching the wider summer campaign ‘Carnaby in Colour’.
The temporary art piece, which will be in situ from 6 July until mid-September, comes in the form of three hand / heart-shaped arches that will be suspended above Carnaby Street and Newburgh Street. These will sit alongside the existing Welcome To Carnaby Street arches that have also been upcycled with colourful recycled hand embellishments. The installation has been made using waste plastic sourced from local shops and restaurants and the wider district. The installation took 4 weeks of collecting waste plastic, 16 days of sheet pressing and a team of 13 people to create the finished materials. A total of 684 kg of recycled plastic waste was used in the process ranging from bakery crates and buckets to food palettes and unwanted shop decorations.
