Artist-duo Ben Cain and Tina Gverović have created the sculpture Floating Garden for the University in response to the theme of ‘library’. It is installed on the grass in the library quad, near the URS building. The sculpture’s unique material is an aggregate of limecrete, sand and stones, and incorporates plastic waste generated by the University. Its simple form invites interaction – it can be sat on, stood on, or used in more inventive ways!
