Our thanks to Chris Dodd architect who, on Saturday 9th June, presented FFIOW with a collaged image he calls " Isle of Wight Fracking" at our all day presentation event in Arreton.
We are safeguarding the artwork and hope to either raffle or auction it at an event later in the year.
He explained that when he heard of plans to licence and drill on the island, he created it from a photograph of a large piece of driftwood which he adjusted and enlarged to form the image of an elongated island.
This gave the impression of the complex strata of IOW geology.
He then cut it up into sections to represent the many faults that lie across the island at risk of being further fractured by drilling and fracking.
