We have created a series of wreaths and poetry in response to various sites across Queenswood. Each wreath frames a certain viewpoint in relation to the poetry, expressing our personal experiences for each location. They pay homage to the circular economy of the forest and the history of Queenswood as a place of memorials.

Status Critical

Status Critical

This collaborative piece is about the preservation and containment of our environment, which is currently a major concern.

We have chosen to create a barrier around this tree as a way of protecting it, much like when endangered species are put in captivity to prevent its extinction.
