Work in the woods begins again

Karl Gunter

With the end of autumn 2016 upon us we are beginning work on existing and new structures for the Whispering Knights - Neolithic Echoes project.

Here is one of the new spirals - just in the process of laying out the pattern and starting on the core...

Once the core is built up, the next stage is to 'dress' it... how that turns out will depend on the materials we have from the ongoing thinning that needs to take place to give the remaining trees space and light.

From Saturday May 21st until Monday May 30th 2016,  the woodland project we’ve been working on will be open to the public for Oxfordshire Artweeks.

Video - Neolithic Echoes

Karl Gunter

Karl has put together a 3 minute video of the more elaborate structures. Everything is so ephemeral that things look their best for a short time and then start to decay as insects, mycelium, weather and time work their magic. Each stage has its beauty, but it is the beauty of change and impermanence. Wabi-sabi; perhaps.

The woodland will be open for Oxfordshire Artweeks from May 21st until May 30th 2016.

Wabi-sabi (侘寂?) represents Japanese aesthetics and a Japanese world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin?), specifically impermanence (無常 mujō?), suffering (苦 ku?) and emptiness or absence of self-nature (空 kū?).

Walk around the woods and see what we've been doing...
Whispering Knights - Neolithic Echoes.
We have been making new habitat mounds, refreshing some of the old ones and letting others slowly decay and it makes for an almost surreal environment on a misty morning and a strange 'otherworld' on a sunny afternoon.

As part of Oxfordshire Artweeks 2016, you are welcome to come and walk around the woods and enjoy the glorious atmosphere; well, current weather ignored! 

The woodland will be open from May 21st until May 30th 2016.
