Phoenix Project, day 2
Posted by carlotta on Sunday August 4th, 2013 at 11:08am
The next instalment of my daily post about the Phoenix Project, a photo documentary about the former industrial site in the heart of Lewes that is now home to over a dozen vibrant arts and community groups.
A giant’s game of pick-up-sticks
I received an email yesterday from William Hardie asking if I had time to stop by his workshop. He said they had laid out a giant game of pick-up-sticks made of oak but they would be dismantling it by the end of the day. This was not an opportunity I could miss and it was spectacular. Even in their enormous workshop this criss-crossing of huge oak beams completely filled the floor space.
Destined for the garden of a wealthy Kuwaiti, this is one of two identical pergolas. Each will be supported by four metal ‘trees’ with real trees growing up through the canopy of oak beams.
As I wandered around taking photographs, I could’t decide whether it might be a giant’s game of noughts and crosses, instead.
The gallery of William Hardie photographs is here.
