On Cat Jones’ Field Suite

“It’s subtle, multi-sensory, esoteric and a great lateral addition to the program.”

Wired Lab Open Day 2014 presented a range of landscape scale, site responsive projects.

In the video above Sarah Last, Director The Wired Lab, describes Cat Jones’ Evolution: A Walk [with Herbivores] and Plantarum: Empathic Limb Clinic (cue from 6:20 – 8:22mins).

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.
