Publication Date
Description Richard William Wheater is a Wakefield artist who uses performance and installation to discuss our relationship with the natural environment. His 2008 project Them and Us took place across six UK locations including Ferrybridge power station, Marsden South Shields, Leicester Botanical Gardens and Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Using a mobile furnace, Wheater produced a number of glass birds, selecting species that had a particular connection with each chosen area, which, once complete, were thrown into the air and allowed to fall and smash, the action captured with beautiful photography by David Lindsay.
