The Sustain Series project continues with its second volume, 24 recycled forms created from old and unused material. Since the release of Volume 1 in November last year, more artists have come together to salvage, repurpose, restore and deconstruct each other’s pieces, or collaborate on a particular idea. What results is a growing variety of approaches and outputs, from subtle embellishments to full disfigurement.
Volume 2 moves thematically, as if in four chapters, from the expressive openers, through enchanting natural-sounding pieces, before opening up to more ethereal expanses, and finally darker and more thoughtful ones. As it does, visions emerge of our natural world – its power, its beauty and its vulnerability.
As before, all Bandcamp proceeds will be used to fund our move towards a sustainable future. After raising more than $500 for Conservation International last year, the project is this time partnering with Julie’s Bicycle, a non-profit aimed at mobilising arts and culture to take action on climate change, focusing on high-impact programmes and policy change to make a meaningful impact.
Ambientologist would like to thank all the artists involved, for participating in this project, lending their skills, and contributing to such a diverse collection of pieces.
