Repairing the missing Stokes Croft Turbo Island head

I have recently started doing some work with PRSC (People's Republic of Stokes Croft) in Bristol. The community art centre is a good place for me to be. My hands-on creative art practice is am important release and simultaneous support to the heavy logical world of computer coding. Pictured above is me driving steel rods down the centre of the smashed head. I felt it was important to restore the missing sculpture, which has been absent from Turbo Island since it was vandalised 12 months ago, because they were an important point of navigation for me when I first started visiting Bristol and I am sure they are for others. As a local it is easy to become blind to everyday sights but it's important to remember to think like a visitor.
