Sebastian Brooke

Sebastian Brooke is a Monmouth-based stonecarver, specialising in sculptures and lettering, often working on commission. In 2006, he began to record a likeness of extinct species by carving them stone. It has since formed the beginnings of the enormous project MEMO (the Mass Extinction Monitoring Observatory), a stone structure to be built on the Isle of Portland, part of the World Heritage Site the Jurassic Coast, drawing attention to the ongoing mass extinction of species worldwide.
