The Everyday Plastic Mural
Having laid out all of the plastic to the exact size of the billboard, the piece was photographed by Ollie Harrop using a 5m high by 6m wide rig and the items were captured at actual size. The final piece measures 12.5m wide by 4m tall, and such was the volume of plastic, it required 20 individual photos to be taken and then stitched together in post-production by Ian Hall.
Funded by Dreamland, Mural-by-the-Sea is the brainchild of StudioTAC, a Margate based creative company who built and designed the steel frame incasing the mural. StudioTAC will be curating and organising the commission programme in collaboration with Dreamland and various art institutions.
