Project outline:CUT/STACK/BURN is a performative re-enactment of a redundant rural activity - furze cutting for domestic fuel (or gorse outside of cornwall). The project uses art installation as a platform to develop a visual conversation about the implications and absence of sustainable approaches in the management of land and its resources. Our current use of energy in an age of climate change becomes a focal point and pivotal issue in this visual debate.

Great site for the artwork, Bruce. Does this location have some significance/history, or did you want a sea view for your workplace?

it is agreat site david your'e right. It commands a stunning postion right in the epicentre of the bay with the ancient st michaels way crossing just below the sight of my work. this was a pilgrimage route and from this i get a sense of convergence about the place. this seemed particu;rly relevant as the the furze for the project comes from many places in lizard and west cornwall and is brought together there. it came about because of its involvment with artists such as james turrel and davis nash but also local artist network PLAP.also I liked the sharp contrast between the subtropical garden and wind blasted heath - rough/smooth. I had been looking for a site with a hilltop position but the view is actually better lower down at Tremenheere at the bottom of the garden.
