Site specific installation for OrganicLea aniversary festival. OrganicLea is a community food project based in the Lea Valley in north-east London. With a workers’ cooperative at theirs core, they bring people together to take action towards a more just and sustainable society.

This installation is part of a series of work exploring the system of life. The work is buil with elements gleaned in OrganicLea, its surroundings and components from previous artwork. Introducing the circular economy with its transformation process into the process of the artwork.

The work often lies on a table, a place where thoughts flows and where we have dedicated time to think. The table became a sort of map, a mind map, a Sci-fi map, or simply a map of OrganicLea seen through ants’ eyes? Through a cartographic layout, we jump from the mico and the macro. The components are lined up from A to B, inviting to question the idea of no- menclature, definition and boundaries.

The title comes from Italo Calvino’ book, in his short nouvelle ‘Collection of Sand’ he explores the underneath of what is the purpose of a collection, the impulse of collecting objects and what existential question lies in this act.
