click on knit the walls and 700 women to find out more about these ongoing participatory works

the sparrows and woodlice inhabiting the walls are drawing me in, and the dynamics between the 9 of us working on the project are fluid, challenging, thrilling and generative.

we will be holding a series of events through the summer accompanying and culminating in an exhibition of works and process in september.

see you then.

‘god’s house tower – a reincarnation’ is both a research and generative art project. it is produced in collaboration with southampton solent university and ‘a space arts’.


7 selected southampton based artists will investigate how group-working methodologies can enrich and inform individual artistic process. each selected artist will create new work during a residency period at god’s house tower as it is transformed into a new arts and heritage venue.


the outcomes of the research will be communicated via an ongoing blog along with being formally presented in academic contexts. the artworks will be exhibited widely via a range of exhibition and satellite events.
