The Observatory of Lost and Found:

خذ المزيد The Observatory of Lost and Found is a project that developed from my summer as artist in residence at Phytology, 2017.

اقرأ أكثر Phytology is an artist & community led project exploring the use, value, resilience and function of wildness within urban ecosystems. It is a multi-layered and unique entity in character, history, and material makeup, sited at Bethnal Green Nature Reserve.

The stuff I collected became an examination of the physical properties of the disregarded matter that collects there, weeds, rubbish, wildlife, as well as people like me looking for respite from the city. Looking closely at my finds, I got interested in the other properties of this stuff we share our environment with. How do the things we discard reflect us? What can looking more closely at the city’s material unconscious tell us about ourselves?

I've found items from the 1800s to yesterday, dug up by foxes and blown in by the wind. The site is a midden; a repository of our waste matter as well as a gap in the conscious life of the city; an island where eddies of dirt, litter, bugs, drugs, lost goods, buried treasure, animals, microbes, seeds and weeds, and now people collect, to form a rich web of material relationships. Through documenting  and reflecting on these bits and bobs, I interpret our London lives as part of a community of matter.

I also experimented with the transformational properties of the medicinal plants and resident microbes on-site, making wine, cheese, fermented plums, and incense.
