In the autumn 2016 my work, Birches and Berries, came to end. This long and intense work sought to grow berries of all sorts between silver birch trees in a large hydroponic tent. It was good to visit the installation once a week and to be part of its maintenance as the trees and berry bushes grew. As with many of my works I was never sure if I would be able to harvest fruits from the installation. As it turned out I was, and it was exciting to be harvesting inside a gallery.
The image shown above was taken later in the project as the trees and berry bushes were dispersed to for others to plant and grow. In many ways this means the work never really finishes but continues in many other contexts and situations. A collection of images from the installation are shown below.
