Blue Eyed Grass On The Peatlands Of Ireland

Installation on the peatlands of County Tyrone
20ft x 40ft

This was an installation created as a response to the folk practices and traditions in Ireland on peatlands, and their commodification. It relates to the theme of Culture Change and Neuroscience in relation to the treatment of these special areas, and family ownership of 'plots' through generations There is a current very slow shift of thinking about the use of these endangered places. For 2 year's I was Artist in Residence on the peatlands for the UK Heritage Lottery, creating work in response to the community connection to the land.

Valuing relationships, not things
Conserving not consuming

Seed bank Installation, County Tyrone,
acrylic globe's filled with plant and Sphagnum Moss samples from across an endangered bogland.

I created this installation as a type of cultural and historical bank, preserving the plant species of Irish boglands, where I spent the last 2 years, as an Artist in Residence for the UK Heritage Lottery Fund. More than 1,000 formal seedbanks exist around the world and it is estimated that 40% of plant species are vulnerable to extinction. This installation is an expression of insurance for the future. Each globe contains cuttings from various Sphagnum Mosses, Bog plants, Bog grasses, and some invasive species. The seed bank is about saving the important things for the future, conserving not consuming and I think this is closely aligned with Shifting Cultural Stories.
