Flynn and Stageman have been awarded a residency in Epping Forest, and working with Loughton Arts Centre in Lopping Hall, will be conducting action research into enclosures and the impact of the forest on the spirit of local people and vice versa. Through drawing, installation, public engagement and performance, the artists are highlighting the successes and challenges in conserving the area.

Collaborators RichTea Projects (Tribley and Westbury) are also influenced by place and identity, particularly ‘the visitor versus the native’. They are performing a series of participatory public interventions, performing guided tours and creating ‘souvenirs’ which celebrate towns in Essex.

Temple-Cox and Watkins’ research centres on networks - both on and offline - through immersion, mapping and modelling. A range of media and techniques are employed to record the artists’ dialogues and findings through their own form of sensory ethnography.

Lazell and Lewis bring together their experience in working with light-sensitive and light-responsive materials.  Inspired by photography, 'Cloud' is a large scale, site responsive and immersive installation made out of glass and forged mild steel.
