The diggers have been on site for the late May bank holiday weekend, please see below for documentation of the burial of works.

The project allows for a range of media to be considered in relation to the progression of time and decomposition whilst providing unique documentation of the West Lancashire region. It has been conceived as an experimental ‘art’ residency due to the predicted physical transformation of the objects involved and how the artists/viewers engage with and respond to this change.
In summer 2014, works will be unearthed, documented and prepared for a public exhibition.
Please email any queries to project curators John O'Hare and Gordon Culshaw at free space projects - at - gmail - dot com.
