"A New Landscape" By Philip Beesley

"Making an exhibit space at the Gardiner Museum for The Wheels Project is like building part of a city. Clay wheels by more than four hundred different individuals are gathered in The Wheels Project. Each of the wheels carries a different story. The task of organizing such a complex and unruly crowd into a coherent design in fraught, for different forms of organization speak of different cultures with very different politics. What is the space that four hundred stories make?"
