Abstract or Description

In 2018 I began developing a new body of research, the early stage of which was supported by the Artists Research Centre (ARC), an organization set up to ally the University, Library, Museums and Public Gallery (Focal Point) in Southend. This research related to my initial proposal to ‘take my 71 year old mother to Southend for a weekend to talk about the future’. During the research I made contact with two academics in relation to Carl Linneaus’s design contributions. Staffan Müller-Wille at Exeter Univesity and Isabelle Charmantier, Archivist at the Linnean Society, both allowed me to published redacted versions of their their academic essays and with great interested as part of the Appendix of the book and the book is now in the Linnean Society library. The resulting book, Two Plants in Dip, was launched simultaneously at Focal Point Gallery and Tate Modern Publishing Fair, and I have since done a reading from it for a Copy Press event at Strange Cargo in Folkstone.
