aster, bedstraw, colt's-foot

with Sean Roy Parker

31.08.2017
Cell Project Space is working with Sean Roy Parker to lead ‘aster, bedstraw colt’s-foot’, an off-site workshop studying local wild flora and attitudes towards littering in public greenspace.
 
Parker will be collaborating with members from Headway East London, a charity supporting people affected by brain injury. Participants will observe, identify and gather common wildflower specimens, whilst discussing access to the footways and litterpicking en-route. The workshop will conclude with bouquet-making and flatbed scans of their findings, inspired by Parker’s ongoing series ‘Roadside Montage Homescreens’. The active citizenship encouraged in ‘aster, bedstraw, colt’s-foot’ offers a creative solution to navigating our often-neglected and overpopulated greenspaces.
