This sculptural shelter is an exploration into the history of industry in Surrey and how the use of the landscape has changed over time. Bryn Hallett will use the geological palette to create a tranquil space of calmness and reflection, a rest stop along the Pilgrims Way and North Downs Way.
Drawing on this varied geology, the monolithic mass of the Watts chapel and the importance of the woodland, the sculpture will give a reminder of the interaction between people, industry and the landscape. It will provide a place to take in the beauty of the woodland and offer a unique view of the landscape before slowly melting away back to the earth.
This sculpture will be installed in the Limnerslease woodland from the 19 June 2018 and will last as long as the elements allow. There is parking at the Watts Gallery, Down Lane, Compton, Surrey, GU3 1DQ and number 46 bus travels there from Guildford town centre.
