The Fishers pond (2009), wood, pots, stoves, gas bottles, pond water

On March 31st I drained all the water from a pond in Long Buckby, Oxfordshire, and I boiled and evaporated it into a gallery space. This made it hot, smelly and uncomfortable.

Three hundred plastic buckets were collected from a neighbourhood in North London, one from each household. Here they are lined up, collecting as much rain water as they can.


Bird temple (2008), wood, paint, live birds

A temple in the shape of a bird house (or vice versa). Its shape and colours were copied from a scale model of destroyed Herod's Temple in Jerusalem. Five small birds were free to fly around the room and use the temple, and so were the human visitors.
