The Fibonacci Sequence appears in the foundation of aspects of art, beauty and life. It is all around us everyday in nature, music, architecture and design. From the sizes of our arms relative to our torso, to the construction of Hurricanes, to Rams horns and even in our DNA.
Bringing together community groups and schools across West Cornwall, this projects encourages the planting and nurturing of sunflowers throughout the summer. In autumn we will harvest and dry the seeds heads and then begin the creative mindfulness process of painting with the Fibonacci approach. The project will culminate in the spring 2019 with a colourful collective exhibition of all of the decorated seed heads.
This project is funded by Falmouth Cultural Services and Feast. Feast is a programme to make great art happen across Cornwall. Investment for Feast comes from Arts Council England and Cornwall Council and the programme is managed by Creative Kernow.
The Vigil Five and Twenty-Thousand. June 2016
Candlelit Vigil in Celebration of the Cornish Miners.
A free and a rare public gathering at Gwennap Pit with informal performances of art, music, words and song.
"Jo instigated the idea of a candlelit ‘Vigil’ and her creative energy and vision became the catalyst for the generosity of spirit that ensued. Her approach allowed the creativity of others to thrive but its clear that her sensibilities, preoccupations and themes were imprinted in every element of a significant and profound performance. "
