By  Robert Foster 2016

Ode to earth (how deep oh well) (2016) Terracotta pots, open-source 3D print (Faerie Bottle or Bud Vase by Whystler) yew tree, glazed gnome statuette, earthenware mug filled with oats, audio from LibriVox.org open-source reading by Stewart Wills of chapter 99 ('The Doubloon') from Moby Dick by Herman Melville. Inspired by research into Tarot, the series Ode to... reinterprets the four suits (wands, swords, cups and pentacles) within the deck as a series of sculptures that draw upon the elemental correspondences of the minor arcana, as well as the alchemical and magickal associations relevant to each category. Bringing together a range of materials including crystal skulls, living herbs and plants, archaeological finds, collectables and open source 3D prints, the works ruminate on the manner in which abstract knowledge is understood, shared and distributed.
