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.

This week saw the influx of very welcome and enthusiastic help from St Just Primary school and Mounts Bay secondary school Penzance. The young students never turned a hair at the prospect of using such an unforgiving material and good fun to have around. St Just y6 completed the upper left section followed up by Mounts Bay with the middle to upper on the right. the methodic and careful approach by y10 Mounts bay was really good to see and showed what young adults are relly capable of given the chance to be hands-on out of the class room. This hive of activity was matched by the speed and determination of the industrious y6 team form St Just earlier in the week. Well done and thanks for the effort, it was fantastic.
