Derwentwise is a 5 year project to inspire people to care for the Lower Derwent Valley in Derbyshire.
We won a commission from them – the brief was: ’tie together DerwentWISE’s 60 projects under a linked identity to create a playful and engaging artwork that communicates the scale, scope, ambition and achievements of DerwentWISE’.
We decided to make a massive heart. It symbolises the valley as a living entity made of different elements which must all work together to be nourished and survive. It represents the love of place, landscape and community. It turned out a bit bonkers and a bit awesome! We are looking forward to seeing it pop up at events around Derby in the coming year.
