Updates for the Whispering Knights woodland project - Neolithic Echoes.


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 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.

We have been keeping a note of changes and work in the woods over the last year but most of our efforts have been in doing the work rather than writing about it - we are now going through all the photos and notes to add some updates to the galleries. and here in this 'updates' section.

Now that we're getting into nesting time, not much work is being done in the woods at the moment with regards to thinning, but we are recording changes and watching how the structures and mounds from winter are starting to change in character and looks.

Here is a link to Miranda's entwife blog where she has written a little about what we have been doing:
