Georgia Gendall

When was the last time you lay down to look at the sky ?

The clay landscape is one of highs and lows. From the depths of pits 130 metres deep to the tip of the Sky Tip which dominates the ridge above St Austell, it’s a landscape that has been shaped by people, and the landscape has shaped people in return. In this specially commissioned audio artwork, “When was the last time…” Helston based artist Georgia Gendall takes us with her on a journey from the bottom of a china clay pit to the search for clay on Mars.

Featuring interviews with a wide range of people from St Austell and futher afield, along this vertical tour we hear the stories of the people whose lives are shaped by the clay.

Best listened to lying down flat on the ground outside at sunset. (1h:39m).
