‘By Royal Decree’ is an art installation designed to maintain and increase awareness of the climate crisis and the urgency with which it needs to be tackled. A touring exhibition designed as a window display, helping to keep the issue in the public eye. To highlight that nature isn’t just a window display or an attraction, that we need to look at the world we are living in and make significant changes for it to survive. The installation is based around the idea of having a nature's royal family issuing a decree that we're out of time and need to act now.

This will first be installed in the windows of The Sanctuary at Derby Cathedral throughout April 2020

The royal family is a series of dolls made of upcycled materials. Paper mache on reused lampshade frames, with a magazine collage surface decoration, made up entirely of ripped and cut old magazines with foil wrapper embellishments, no paint!

The royal family consists of

Noble Fir

Queen Bee

Monarch Butterfly

Emperor Dragonfly

Crowned Eagle

Red Empress

King Fisher

King Of The Jungle

Lady Bird

Ladies Slipper & Mantle

The figures will be raised on recycled, wood worked layered paper blocks with nameplates. The blocks create a platform to portray them in their own entity, but as a group to highlight their importance and strength together.

To create a feeling of nature the installation will be infused with upcycled paper flowers and trees. These will be made using woodworking techniques with laminated upcycled paper and wood. This will create an atmosphere and metaphorically show the positive relationship between humans and nature that could and should be obtained.

A excerpt from the book written to accompany the installation will be displayed as well as a large clock. The clock is a magazine collage, no paint, on what was an old mirror frame found in a charity shop.

There will be other references to time in the installation to emphasis the point that urgent action is required and time is running out.
