David Cotterrell's Hill 33 project in the Forest of Dean

David Cotterrell has created an enormous 1,300 tonne, 11 metre tall, new earthwork made out of HESCO concertainers (TM) which are used by the Army to build shelters and large-scale defence structures in Afghanistan. David Cotterrell’s first sight of HESCO was when he was based in Afghanistan as a war artist. The artwork is in Gloucestershire and was commissioned by the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust.

Watch a time lapse video of the artwork being created here:

Hoping to go and see it soon. It looks a bit stark at the moment but it will be interesting to see how much it changes over the next few years.
