Eden Project Artists Research

Before going to the Eden Project, I have decided to have a look at artists which could inspire my work or which are already exhibiting work within the Eden Project itself.


I have found that Andy Goldsworthy has made a 7 metre high, 3.3-tonne sculpture, ‘The WEEE Man,’ which represents the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) that the average British household discards in a lifetime.

The WEEE man can give us a rough idea of what one household gets through in a lifetime.

According to the Eden Project website, this is what the WEE man is comprised of:


Another piece of art within the Eden Project is the permanent installation, ‘Seed,’ by Peter Randall-Page, which is a large, egg-shaped stone sculpture which involves a complicated pattern of bumps that are based upon geometric and mathematical principles of plant growth. This piece took several years to complete and is shown below:
