Clowning Around, Cophurst Holme Styes Woods
Like children that once lived here the poppets are out to play, they’ve come out to see what’s going on, to watch over their wilderness. Usually safely hidden in the nooks and crannies of the derelict buildings, they observe and record the secrets of this space. As nature reclaims the abandoned habitation the poppets look out for the wild things as they quietly go about their business. The untidy corners matter, here nature mends and the wild things make their homes in this no man’s land, it’s nature’s land where the poppets play.
