The last post I published which related to my current college work was in relation to Syria, refugees and structures/shelter.

I was listening to BBC Newshour one night and I came across a news piece about Frencesco Tuccio and how he had made crosses from the wreckage of boats that the refugees had used to cross the Mediterranean. I found this very interesting, not only did he use his carpentry skills to create an object but the object itself and how it related to the refugee crisis in a very real physical way.

A cross was commissioned by the British Museum
