Fred Baier’s Journey through a Log at Ifield Community College weighs 10 tons and was constructed from an oak tree felled when the new college was built. The planked log was reassembled and raised on legs. A corridor to one side reveals the grain and leaves enough space to allow for a chamber - The Heart – where the viewer can contemplate the log’s growth rings.
Poets’ Corner by Heinrich and Palmer for Thomas Bennett Community College creates a virtual opening into Tilgate Forest through a corner wall in the main atrium of the college. The scene is created by a large back-lit photograph inviting the viewer to step through and into the space beyond. The image is extremely high resolution so tiny details, including a trail of yellow origami birds slowly unfolding into the background, may be discovered over time. A ribbon of Chinese Whispers begins in the image then winds its way out onto the college walls and down the atrium.
