Sam Williams was the recipient of one of our Micro-Commissions in January. Sam has been developing A Soft Landing, an online resource inspired by the activity of communal gardens and city allotments. It is a space where volunteers are invited to share, learn, contribute and care for themselves and others, through the sharing of material that could be used for nourishment, growth, pleasure, education or healing. This material might take the form of recipes, remedies, poems, instructions, inspirations, sounds or images - but these are just suggestions. Volunteers are welcome to contribute material to a fresh plot or respond to material from another. Visitors are free to explore all contributed material and take from it what they might need (a recipe, a remedy, or simply inspiration...) They may also request to volunteer and contribute at a later date.
In response to our Digital Resident Jaron Hill we’ve selected five artists for Five2Watch who have explored bodies within landscapes as part of their art practice: Judith Burrows, Helena Eflerova, Katri Walker, Natalie Ramus and Tony Humbleyard.
An Other A, B, C is a digital, printable, and shareable open access publication on self-preservation, love, and resistance at home and beyond. This pamphlet is made from a hand-picked gathering of unregulated conversations between Eole (2yo) and their parent melissandre varin (29yo) as they contribute to drafting and crafting counter-hegemonic worlds.
