This was a public participatory project in which Abigail Burt invited a wide audience of students, emerging artists and the public to sculpt an endangered species from wax. Through the course of the project, Abigail led participants on a journey through the lost-wax casting process, whilst creating a dynamic dialogue about the ever increasing range of endangered species. This project was a collective collaboration, an act of making in a mutual statement of care towards endangered species. Each sculpture carefully crafted in the homes of the participants, brought together as a call for action.
