SEEDHENGE was an ephemeral sun monument at Kestle Barton made of sunflowers grown from cheap birdseed from a popular chain of discount home hardware stores. Intended as a reflection on recent and ongoing issues of food security, it was a work that harkened back to classic 20th Century land art, in particular Agnes Denes’ Wheatfield, while referencing the prehistoric architecture of Cornwall.The process of growth was captured in a long-duration time-lapse and by pinhole ‘solargraph’ cameras at the ordinal points.

A charm of finches accounted for the bulk of the drought afflicted harvest.
