david kemp"I make things out of things, big things, little things, old things and new things. I like to recycle things, and find new uses for things that have been thrown away. Some things say something about their surroundings, and other things become something else."

For more than 20 years, David Kemp has lived and worked on the exposed Atlantic coast of West Cornwall - inspired by the natural landscape, and by the remains of the tin-mining industry carried out there since medieval times. Living among the ruins, he collects fragments, piecing together curious connections between past and emergent mythologies and technologies.
