“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

My Ph.D. student from the UK is doing a very powerful piece “about” allotments, but is about the right term, considering that it is one? I mean this in all sincerity. I reckon that in an ecological era the idea that we do art “about” things will evaporate.

In any case here is Kate's latest blog post. It's always a pleasure to read these. The blog is part of the work.
