Drawn to carrying out Sisyphean tasks, this is a work in progress arising from my desire to clean out every tiny visible piece of plastic from a pile of free council compost. Although the problem seems insurmountable, my panic for the wider problem is calmed by taking the only action appropriate: to unpollute the compost before me.


Of course the problem remains, ever growing, but somehow with this action, which can only ever be symbolic, I have for my own sanity clocked it and not tried to turn a blind eye.
