Don’t chuck away those polystyrene blocks encasing your new computer. Give them to former Royal College of Art student Charles Hadcock, a sculptor who uses them to make metal casts. Hadcock also fishes out items from gutters and skips, and finds inspiration in cast-off engineering products.

Other works also feature inexplicable names, such as Eikonostasion. His exhibition, Investigating Multiples, is showing at Reed’s Wharf Gallery in London until 24 May.
