As part of the Earthed Exhibition we invited members of the public to submit their design for a 30m circle of land-art on Ashton Meadows, the green space opposite the Create Centre.
The winning entry will be mown into the long grass over at Ashton Meadows on Sunday.
A copy of the winning design will also go on display in the exhibition in the Create Centre
And the winner is…
Coming Together Mankind Earth Life Junction
Congratulations to Elena!
Second place was number 29 and third was number 13. Land artist Mick Petts says:
“All three were chosen for the inclusion of interestingly shaped paths inviting people into the area of long meadow.
The winner was chosen for the strength and clarity of the design and the combination of geometric and flowing lines”
Thanks to everyone who entered the competition and who voted for their favourites.
That’s it folks! The trench is dug, cabinets are ready, the tent is turfed, all the scribbling, sticking and scraping is done. We’re ready to kick off the Earthed Weekender tomorrow morning with the first of our Earthed Conversations, ‘What Lies Beneath’ where soil specialists, geologists and archaeologists join in a conversation on all things earthy with our artists.
There are workshops, self-led activities, and of course the exhibition itself, on all day so drop by the Create Centre and see what’s happening.
Till tomorrow then,
The Earthed Team
Not long now! Things finally shaping up and everything looks so different from when we started. We’re all very excited about the weekend’s activities and helping the public to fill the space with bits and pieces inspired by Ashton Meadows. Fingers crossed for a sunny weekend!
We’ve shovelled and shaped, turfed and twisted, smeared and stitched, bolted, bashed and built. At the end of day three the place is starting to look like an exhibition ready to be filled with contributions, creations, ideas, stories and images.
If you have any stories, images, videos or memories of Ashton Court you’d like to share with us then get in touch,
Alternatively, just bring yourself along to the Earthed Weekend this Saturday and Sunday at the Create Centre.
All activities are free with some needing pre-booked tickets in advance. You can get your free tickets for the workshops on Eventbrite.
