The Not Quite Yet presents an exhibition of new work by artists Manu Luksch + Mukul Patel, Loraine Leeson, Stacy Makishi and Lois Weaver. The artists have been invited to respond to a research project that engages groups of older people in East London exploring their relationship to technology and its development.
For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.
We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
