Wasted.   the more you know.

Sometimes we need big statements to remind us of the small things we should be doing to make the world a better place, and the WEEE man, a beautifully conceived sculpture representing the 3.3 tonnes of electrical & electronic waste each of us will chuck out during our lifetimes, is an excellent example of that. It's going to be hanging out on the Southbank (where I saw it) until May 27th, then heading down to the Eden Project for the summer, before, finally, like all good appliances, being recycled. Congratulations to my friend Mark Fremantle who co-developed it, and his friend Hugh Knowles, who came up with the idea - and to both for battling long and hard to get the project realised.
