In early 2000 I began working on a commission for the Eden Project in Cornwall. It was still a building site at this point! My job was to work with a team of scientists from Reading University to create a garden concept concerned with UK natural indigo dye on a project called ‘Spindigo’. Over the next two years we spent many weeks there, developing the garden, installing the indigo yurt, and hosting a series of inter-active workshop events. My final commission in summer 2002 was to create a set of upcycled fleece jackets for the Eden Project performance team. I used cuttings - from the extraordinarily exotic compost heaps at the back of the biomes - to over-print the jackets. Whilst in Cornwall I had also been continuously searching for and collecting shirts from the local second hand shops in St. Austell. I took the cuttings and shirts back to London and produced a set of Palm Print shirts.
