A house of leaves (after Alison Knowles) - detail | 2019 | A5 multiple

Dead Gunnera leaves in the formal gardens of the Dartington Estate re-imagined as a human shelter/encampment and presented alongside a single iteration of Alison Knowles' computer-generated poem A house of dust: "A house of leaves, by a river, using all available lighting, inhabited by friends."

Commissioned and printed by Nick Davies as part of 'Building Proposals', a limited-edition box publication containing new work by 22 artists and one architect, produced to mark the 50th anniversary of Fantastic Architecture by Dick Higgins and Wolf Vostell.
