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.

A group of about 10 hardy stalwarts stayed on after dark. It was like a private view but in reverse - bottle of bubbly, pizza all round. As we munched and mulled over the event inside the ash circle a light breeze would waft the embers and it would glow briefly and then die down again. Later a 4ft tornado of sparks momentarily whirled suddenly between the remnants of the steel supports and worked its way along over the ashes picking up sparks as it went before finally petering out.
