A series of interconnecting Vessels, Stories, Maps and Conversations.
2017 - Ongoing
A playful research project, outlining the theoretical use of UK roadsides, verges and roundabouts as potential sites to grow food in a future where cars are no longer running on fossil fuel and the population is ever growing.
THE ROAD SIDE,
By mapping out all Public roads in the UK we are able to begin to see the vast amounts of land available. In the UK our roads are broken down into; 29,145 miles (46,904 km) of main roads, 2,173 miles (3,497 km) of motorways and 213,750 miles (344,000 km) of paved roads.
A total of 245,068 miles (394,401 km).
In the not to distant future Cars will cease to run on Fossil Fuels. By 2040 it is estimated that all cars will be electric. By this time the UK population will have risen to 72'800'000. In a world where the roads are no longer polluted and agricultural land resources are limited. Could our roadsides be a source of sustenance to our growing population.
