Abstract or Description

Crossing The Field art installation began as a series of reflections on our experiences of the radical shifts and changes in the place of, and spaces for art therapy in the UK. Provoked by the crisis of whole populations of people traversing the globe in search of a place of safety and refuge, these discussions grew into the concept of a collaborative tent city on the college field. At the same time our colleagues in Australia were moved by similar concerns to imagine a tent-shaped installation of builders’ plumb bobs and line, a void space inside the posi1ve space suggesting tension, precision, intention; a place where borders are articulated.
