The Project

In this immersive art work the audience will move through an installation of 100 scaffolding planks which are placed like rows of crops. These rows are seeded with 4000 tall metal rods crowned with recycled plastic bags. At the heart of this human-created plastic field there are questions being raised around modern environmental issues. Thinking about these issues is disrupted and changed by the experience of being in the installation which features unique movement and sound. The installation can be experienced in two ways, by physically moving through the path in the centre of the work, but also as a sculptural installation to be observed from outside the installation. Audience members will experience the choreographic movement of the stems generated by the flow of audience members. The audience is mostly obscured when inside the work except for their heads appearing by the plastic bags creating a truly unique landscape to witness.
