My panel was mixed media: mosaic with inlaid found objects to support my concept of Brick Lane being like a flowing river littered with the remnants of its inhabitants. Articles that may have been misplaced or dropped in the currant. Objects such as keys, bottle-tops, jewellery and accessories as well as trinkets from local shops. Emphasising the theory of one persons trash being another one’s treasure.
