Abstract

With artist Dr Rachel Jacobs, and as part of a 'When The Future Comes Collective' annual activity, the Future Machine travelled with Caroline Locke to Cannington Primary School in Somerset. The artists worked with each of the school year groups, discussing the trees, the environment, past, present and future in relation to the climate emergency. The classes engaged with the Future Machine. School children listened and sometimes danced to the music of the weather in the present, listened to the messages left in the past from the other places around England and each class left their own message for the future. Caroline Locke, who had attended Cannington Primary School herself 44 years before had planted a tree in the playing fields on the other side of the village when she was at school. As part of her Significant Trees artwork she has made a bell based on the frequency of the sound of this tree. We rang this bell to celebrate the Summer 2023 and the green leaves on the newly planted Hazel and Rowan trees that the children planted in March with Caroline Locke.
