In April 2008 a new company, 'Ark Lab', was set up in order to establish a comprehensive feasibility study of John Newling's proposed project, Ark: Road Vines. Ark Lab will disseminate information on this project at regular intervals throughout the coming months as the project moves from proposal to realisation. Ark: Road Vines will create the first ever mobile hydroponic vine yard; visiting particular and bringing itself into the local context, generating a relationship of questions and experiences. Ark: Road Vines will house a space that unfolds to become a laboratory, workshop and seminar space. It will archive all its transactions; collecting evidence of discussions, ideas and ensuing artworks. Ark: Road Vines is a major art project that is a living, moving entity that gathers and gains knowledge whilst being a spectacular visual icon within that landscape.
