'Bransholme – a hill surrounded by water'The concept underpinning these artworks are derived from the geology, topography, biodiversity, social history & heritage of the area known in Domesday times as ‘Sudtone’ & now referred to as Bransholme or Sutton-in-Holderness. Multifarious strands of influence are brought together in a maelstrom cloud. This apparently chaotic drift of objects however contains a signature. It is at once, the past, present & future of the school & its locale, cast as a seed cloud; the school’s ‘dna’: a cloud of opportunity & growing potential; working ‘in community’ on this new site.Within its layered form, the cloud yields a narrative made up of abstract & other more identifiable shapes; seeds, spores, pollen, diatoms, dust. These microscopic & tiny forms are enmeshed with larger drawings of stones, leaves, animals, flowers & insects. Abstract forms evoke the visual language of maps & refer directly to the topography, geology & husbandry of the local area.Out of the maelstrom cloud spins a formal garden, an island of cultivation & order, built from the chaos of the cloud; colour beginning to bring it to life.The project was commissioned by Esteem Consortium. The artwork was manufactured & installed by Artworks Solutions Ltd. Project Architects: JM ArchitectsMain Contractor: Morgan Sindall
