Potential Space

30 Oaks - 30 Silver

A transmedial project which began in 2022. Planting 30 oak saplings and burying 30 silver coins across 7 locations in the UK, where I lived over a 30-year period from 1982 to 2012. 

I collect found objects at each site to make assemblages and totems, I imagine a genius loci and create visual works on paper and spontaneous text based works, to embody and explore memory, experience, affect and meaning.
