Through a YOTA project I worked with the Poet Esther Morgan on
with the generation of text which was used as content
within the fabric of the route for numerous interventions. This
included the creation of a set of postcards, benches, growing
poetry in grass, new fences, crossing spaces and exhibitions in
council offices, shops and post offices.

Council Planning and Transport Department.
Working over 21 miles in liaison with 12 Parish Councils, Norwich
City Council and Norfolk County Council on the
development of an artistic vision for the path. Consultation
sessions included user groups; horse riders, councillors,
schools, cycle groups, fishermen and kids bunking off school.

Albany wall - Colchester Borough Council
The creation of a work with Colchester Borough Council and the
past residents and workers of the site of a derelict laundry
in Albany gardens in the Hythe area of Colchester. The work
celebrates the history of the site while providing a talking point
for the new residents of area as well as visitors to the sea to town
trail. The piece takes the form of 2 large granite pieces
referencing the buildings demolished and also the ones newly built.
You can walk between the stones are read the words
which are generated from community involvement and sandblasted
into it. The text is laid put as if one voice, the voice of the space
which can be read and reread with each viewing so that the work
does not age or to appear fully understood by individuals passing
the work repeatedly. There are many stories within the piece - often
conflicting and untrue - the beginnings of more urban myths.
