‘Love And Extinction’ is a ML generated moving image work responding to the ecology crisis by Jaime Jackson. The work was made from a photographic archive of over 300 participants at the National Trust’s Brockhampton Estate Orchards, Herefordshire, as part of Salt Road’s We Foragers Unquiet Arts Council England funded program. In April and May 2023, Jaime in partnership with Culture Declares Emergency Birmingham hub invited people from Birmingham to the estate and photographed their hands, inviting them to imagine they were bees pollinating the orchard’s fruit blossoms. He also engaged with visiting National Trust members and passers-by.
Exchange Festival is part of the Diving In Programme funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund
