Ruth Ewan

Another Time is a meadow and test-bed which, over the next three years, will transform a disused field next to Gravel Hill Farm workers' cottages into a non-mechanical clock. The plants featured in the meadow have been carefully selected for their predictable flower opening and closing times - as first hypothesised by Carl Linnaeus his book Philosophia Botanica, 1751. The project is accompanied by a pamphlet detailing the research and ideas behind the project.

Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway

Imagining cities like plants is an exhibition within the Artists Studios at Gravel Hill Farm that will capture research carried out by Joshua Portway and Lise Autogena during their residency with The Sainsbury Laboratory. The artists have investigated the structure of cities using models of plant growth and techniques acquired from plant biology. The exhibition takes a sideways look at the relationship between urban ecology of the city and the cellular biology of plants.
