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.

It could have been so different considering the changeable nature of weather patterns around that time of year. As it was people were relaxed and children played. I had experienced deluges of rain on many occasions while gathering the furze. One time in February I was out at Coverack and got so wet I had to change before driving home but before I had managed to get into the car the dry clothes were almost as wet. Later in March I got sun burnt one day and the next day it snowed sleet and was bitterly cold. Later the same day I was back to wearing a t-shirt again.
