Common Parts Canteen

Case Study

COMMON PARTS | A Collection. A Canteen. A Community

September 2017

Starting with inspiration from 19th Century ruralist John Clare’s Hollow Tree, we referenced patternmaker Peggy Angus of Furlongs, then discovered odd galactic empires in Ursula Le Guin’s sci-fi for feminist geeks, and listened to echoes from vanished London Bedouin poet Rosemary Tonks. At the Canteen, in exchange for cake we sought to explore all thoughts proffered. This communal activity resulted in some mind blowing, thoughtful jollity.
