Feeding the Insatiable

creative explorations of real and imaginary futures

a summit

November 9 -11 2016

Dartington Hall, Devon, England

Energy is an old, wily creature to walk with. It rises from the heat of the Earth’s core, falls in a sunbeam, comes with the tide to form cliffs. It takes people and places, time and technology, to transform and transport energy (it can never be destroyed). How to walk with this ethereal power, and tell its stories? How to imagine and write its futures?

for my contribution to a touring exhibition at the Museum of Witchcraft (new art reconstructing lost items from index cards) I've had to source twigs from one of the only hazel trees in London, after a quest through lincoln's inn fields!& they're about to become something raunchy
