contemporary british designer karen ryan, who is known for her use of recycled objects has created ‘body’ an installation spread throughout portsmouth, UK.

discarded chair frames were gathered, disassembled and then attached together using zip ties to resemble the skeleton of a human body. the form was consequently placed in desolate locations – including an alleyway and an abandoned field – in such a way that it mimics ‘victims’ or dead bodies.
