In Cyprus (2003) there were a vast number of mounds left on the landscape by companies constructing ‘paradise villas’. Smaller mounds were also made by tourists who left behind a substantial amount of their own litter. Water (Bottle) Mound is created with over a 1000 discarded empty water bottles collected from the roadsides and beaches of Paphos.
The natural formation of each mound inspired the below drawings.
The paper mounds are a conceptual re-imagining of the displacement of natural material taking place in the landscape. Each tiny piece of paper is indented with fingernail marks.
Tony considered these diverse mounds as part of the Cyprus identity.
