The Biospheric Foundation Residency



As described by Manchester International Festival, The Biospheric Foundation is,

‘Brilliantly ambitious, The Biospheric Project aims at nothing less than a total change in the way we think about food, farming and the environment.

When the site threw open its doors to the public, 2,375 people were welcomed to visit this inspiring agricultural laboratory and see plants, fish, chicken and worms take their place in a carefully constructed eco-system within an old mill on the banks of the River Irwell in Salford.’

During a 12 week residency, I worked with artists Melanie Alexandrou, and Bethany Cassidy to explore connections and identify patterns within the project and local community.

We developed creative workshop ideas with the brief to ‘Make Something For The Future’. Various themes emerged, and outcomes included drawings in the river, totem poles, underwater photographs, nests, bird banquets, sound records, projected found objects and maps.

Above are some of the projections which explore the idea of pattern and  meta pattern.
