We have made a series of Souvenir Seed packets. Each contains one bean seed.
We will send these to people who were unable to come to Allotmenta, the Open Day in October and those who have expressed interest in BREAKING GROUND and the allotment residency.
Currently we are developing work started during the residency.
REPORT ON BREAKING GROUND
We reviewed BREAKING GROUND together yesterday and filled in our report form for the NAN New Collaborations Bursary. We found that we have been able to work together in a fruitful partnership and that we have achieved what we set out to do: find out if we can work together; try out being in residence on a site; make some new work.
We realised that BREAKING GROUND has become a wider-ranging and longer-term project. We have been in touch with the University of Brighton re developing some of our ideas in print. We plan to transpose the work indoors and try it out in a Project Space and move towards a future exhibition.
