On Cat Jones’ Field Suite
“It’s subtle, multi-sensory, esoteric and a great lateral addition to the program.”
Gail Priest, Together Listening to Landscape, Realtime 121
Wired Lab Open Day 2014 presented a range of landscape scale, site responsive projects.
After a residency on site to research native, endemic and seasonal plant life, Cat developed a bespoke version of her audio tour A Walk [with Herbivores] with composition by Melissa Hunt for the Wired Lab’s Grey Box grassy woodland country.
Cat installed The Plantarum: Empathic Limb Clinic as a field lab. This new treatise on the art of grafting worked with the single on-site specimen of Artemesia Absinthinium, enhanced by the plant’s own long history of human mind alteration.
