stoc factory

stoc is a poetic sequence and reader-responsive soundwork exploring  post-industrial interruptive gardens in Stoke-on-Trent. It is now installed in the original Spode factory site as part of the British Ceramics Biennial‘s EXPLORE programme.

cratesPart of the installation is formed of squat towers of crates carrying thousands of biscuit bone china leaves.

Every last one is handmade.

The BCB Launch Party saw hundreds of guests walk by the small dark mirrors hidden on work benches, on shelves, under a vent.

A cautious few caught sight of a flicker underneath the surface.

Those that stood and read long enough heard the voices, the percussive chatter of a hundred hands at work.
