HEAVY PLANT Sheffield
I built the Heavy Plant in 1988, in the courtyard of of the recently opened SHEFFIELD SCIENCE PARK , from the detritus of Sheffield’s once huge steel industries, discovered in scrapyards and demolished buildings,in and around the city.
Now,26 years later, the clever earth(steel) from which the piece was made is rusting away , and the sculpture finds itself(again), in the way of new developments .
A campaign has been started in Sheffield to re site the sculpture,
