Houghton Estate, Norfolk 17

An original David Greig shopping trolley (a British supermarket that closed in 1972). Covered in calcium deposits from years of weathering in a canal, its form remained largely the same. The shopping trolley symbolises taking more than we can handle, stocking ourselves up and securing our food supply: basic instinct and excess.

Cities and Ritual

Cities and Ritual

Rituals form a key part of social interactions. The daily ritual of collecting food and how we do that has a profound effect on our landscape and lived experience. Cities are shaped into finite urban forms through our social interactions, methods of storage and survival, in a continuous cycle.
