Steve McPherson is a great artist and collector. He is always working in different formats and scale and making collages, installations, paintings and sculptures. He makes his artworks out of unaltered marine plastic objects, which were found on the UK coast. He was collecting them for 18 years.

The idea is to show that all these items have their own journey and could have travelled through different cities. Steve McPherson took an inspiration from a book, by Jules Vernes "Around the World in Eighty days".

To make these he created many different graphics, which showed an average temperature of each city, where he found a particular item. So he made each item in the colour it is shown on the actual graphic. I found his artworks very inspiring, as it is an interesting way to represent plaices and temperature in a way he did it.
