Island of Trees film

A short film of my Island of Trees installation at River Waveney Sculpture Trail 2016 is now on Vimeo.
Inspired by a childhood memory of a strange chapter in The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame; a missing otter pup, a mysterious protecting Presence, the island near the weir –

re-imagined in an island of willow and alder trees, where ancient Pan presides over a world of weird crawling, flying and hatching creatures, assisted by his sprites – the tree dryad and the river naiad.
Made by puppet-maker Meg Amsden from wild materials; seeds, withies, flowers,
bones, feathers, and paper and plaster.
