Re-Imagine Project Overview
A Brief Overview
This project is a final year project for college.
Creating a way in which traditional art meets contemporary ideas to shape the way in which we can make a difference to help the planet and environment.
What Re-Imagine Has Done
As part of the Re-Imagine project, four oil paintings were produced on A2 canvases.
They were then destroyed using a tree shredder, and the remains put into epoxy resin to create a whole new artwork.
The originals were then sold as NFT's with the profits being donated to #teamtrees.
As well as that, the book "Time To Make The Change" was published in part with the project, teaching people how they can help the planet and save money.

Destruction of Re-Imagine Paintings
Pendle Council needed assurance from both In-Situ and NCC to cover my project, and that they take responsibility for the health and safety.
InSitu were very kind to give me instant assurance. But as for the college, I went back and forth with the head of the art department trying to get permission but was told approval would take up to one week as this had to go through both the health and safety team and the marketing department.
Wanting to speed things up, I went to chat with them in person. A very helpful lady in the marketing team put me in touch with the personnel I need to speak to. I then managed to meet with the head of health and safety, who looked over it all and gave me the full go ahead, so I was delighted permission has now been granted.
It may have been obnoxious of me to go over a few heads, but I couldn’t just sit around and wait for other people to move my vision and project forward. Meeting directly with those who could help ensured I wasn’t stuck in a chain where my project could potentially fizzle out.

Evaluation of Re-Imagine Project
At the start of this project, I was given the brief of “Re-Imagine”, which in short, means that I had to re imagine Nelson town.
