A sound installation, created as an intervention in Northampton’s Grosvenor Shopping Centre, exploring and discussing the thoughts and concerns around motherhood, the climate crisis, consumerism, heritage and hope.

As the assistant designer on this project I was responsible for sourcing, measuring and cutting recycled/repurposed/reused fabric which I then patchworked and stitched together across 10 individual panels to create a 4m diameter, 4 metre tall, seed-shaped tent to house the sound installation in.

I was responsible for dressing the inside of the tent for the production.
