Big Red Man

Interactive Installation 

A visual representation of the weight that young carers bear.

The most overlooked group of young carers in the UK are 4-8 years old.

Handmade body made from 10kg of wadding and 5kg of sand to make it almost impossible to lift up. A metaphor for the amount of stress and responsibility that care givers have to ‘carry’.
