Why keep stuff we don’t need?

Mary Hutchison, 55 | Commoners Choir , 27

I created this animation in response to a callout by Freegle, to make a video for the brilliant “Freegle Song” by the Commoners Choir. It was completed just before lockdown. It may be harder to reuse and recycle right now, but it’s all the more important to support our local communities and help the environment. Why keep stuff we don’t need? In keeping with the theme, the artwork is itself repurposed, using Freegle ads, public domain images, vintage magazines and knitting patterns, together with photographs of my own local neighbourhood, house plant foliage, and pre-loved possessions.
