Sarah Turner‘s massive, life-sized tank was constructed to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of The Great War. Thousands of pieces of plastic rubbish were collected by locals and schools for the project. Hundreds of school children were involved in the project, and each child handcrafted a part of the tank from rubbish they had collected. Turner pieced them all together to produce the finished eco sculpture. The tank was lit up at Nottingham castle for hundreds of visitors for their annual Light Night event.
