Cremorne Gardens, Lots Road, Chelsea is a beautiful green space facing the river. It’s the site of a new commission by London Fieldworks (called Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven), and the temporary site for 4 new texts I have written inspired by the gardens and their colourful history as Victorian pleasure gardens: Ballooning, Balancing, Balconies and Birds. The texts will be in situ until late August 2010.
Below are links to images of the four texts , beautifully designed by Esther Yarnold from Interim. There are also links so you can download your own copies if you’d like.
On Tuesday 27th July I led two story walks at Cremorne Gardens, weaving together my own four texts with responses to four related questions:
1. What’s the most important journey you’ve made in your life?
2. What’s the most successful risk you’ve ever taken?
3. What’s your favourite view?
4. Where is your perfect nesting place?
You can read all of the responses from online readers and walk participants below. If you’d like to add your own responses, please do (comments are moderated, so they won’t appear immediately).
