Artist in plea for dusty donations
Art lovers are being asked to donate dust to be made into bricks for a new exhibition.
Serena Korda will make 500 bricks as part of a show at the Wellcome Collection in London called Dirt: the filthy reality of everyday life.
She said: "I need people's dust, from the tops of their book shelves to the corners of their bedrooms. Let's face it, you don't have to look far to find a pile of dust gathering somewhere: I want people to collect it for me, pop it in a special dust collection envelope and become part of a time capsule. Watch as I transform the almost invisible into the palpable: a brick."
She added that she was inspired by Victorian-era Londoners who recycled dust and dirt from the city to make bricks.
The bricks will be buried after the exhibition ends next August.
