Sometimes a collaboration comes along and you can’t help but be drawn along by both the simplicity of the concept but also the depth of the message…
It’s a greening project with art at it’s heart. The aim of the project is to reclaim a greying part of Senate House car park, UCL, London.
A pop up office will appear as if by magic over night for 19th & 20th October 2013 as part of the Bloomsbury Festival 2013
Contrary to Orwell’s statement in 1984 about ‘putting the boot into the face of humanity’ Alex’s garden will encourage all those who discover it’s magic to play with the greened office space, to be enchanted by the many secret floral touches to be found on closer inspection and to participate in growing a new floral form of shoe planter…
Have we sparked of your imagination? Want to learn more? Jolly good as arts, knowledge and imagination are the festival’s themes this year.
