Raison d’être – the final installations – Co-creative group artworks in the room housing the Piscina

Our Time at Mottisfont has been brilliant.  Raison d’être emerged as the title that encompasses the many threads that we have explored over the last few months.  These last blogs show the outcomes of the residency which came to reflect the etymology and origins of Mottisfont, namely a combination of ‘moots’ or meetings and the ‘font’, the ancient source of spring water that would have attracted people here long ago.

This first blog shows some of the work our co-creative residency group has done, resulting in an installation in the  room housing the Piscina (which used to be the Old Bookshop) next to the main café in the house.  We ran our group as a series of parallel residencies using our workshop time as a forum to share, guide and encourage ideas and artistic responses – these were the ‘moots’ of Mottisfont.  The group installation was conceived as a creative laboratory and has used light to bring all the elements together, and will be installed until Christmas 2013.

The ‘font ‘ and river became the element around which our own installation drew its form which we will cover in the next blog.
