About Art forARTsake

Pam Walpole and Yanni Van Zijl collaborate to combine their two passions – Art and the Environment. They share a desire to bring art outdoors to the public, and choose to create work that inspires discussion and engagement about environmental topics. Often using recycled materials to emphasize the need to recycle, reuse and refuse. Milk bottles are often reworked to create aesthetic structures for contemplation. Sometimes they create work purely for the sake of Art and the joy it can bring


The latest intergovernmental panel on climate change warned we have 12 years to act to limit global warming to no more than 1.5c degrees. Art forARTsake creates an immersive experience – a canopy above creating undulating waves of decorative forms casting interesting shadows below – a sea experience. Suspended on poles carrying text on statistics about global ice melts and encroaching seas. Listen – you will hear soft tinkling of bells warning us we need to wake up, take stock and make changes. Re-cycle, reuse and refuse.
