Nature v Motor
Megan’s bus stop encapsulates the profound effect that traffic congestion and pollution has on the environment and local wildlife. The endless building of roads to accommodate the ever-increasing number of cars strips the countryside of the biodiversity that is vital to our health, wellbeing, culture and economy. Her design incorporates harsh scrap metal with delicate nature, demonstrating the balance we need to find in our lives and the impact it has on the natural world.
Megan Medley is a sculptor who has primarily worked in resin. She has made several light sculptures using remnants from natural history such as skulls, horns and shells. The natural world has been a continual thread throughout her work. The sculptures for the bus stop are her first scrap metal sculptures.
