Sculpture & Photography - Shadow Battery Factory

'Shadow Battery Factory'

After ripping apart the battery with tweezers and gluing it all into the sculpture that forms this shadow, I saw Ed Burtynsky's "Manufactured Landscape" film where a woman in China in pulling batteries apart to pick out the heavy metals all batteries have. Batteries are the most destructive everyday object I can think of, between the inefficiency and the metal poisoning capabilities.
