In Selly Oak, road works are being built to join up to Queen Elizabeth Psychiatric Hospital. On one side are allotments and on the other is a new road which is yet to be joined connecting to the ring road. At the moment this particular land is nothing more then a waste land. Broken bottles, rubble, bricks, shrubs & few flowers are all there is. Half joined walls are painted in graffiti and whilst walking through taking pictures, places like this often makes me consider that short term environmental projects should take place to enhance abandon places.

Since the garden project, work has been carried out in small local gardens where general garden maintenance has been carried out enhancing natural features.
Activities include planting of herbs vegetables and flowers, dead heading and small structural designs have been made using materials such as bricks stones, twigs and found objects.
Plans have been made further whilst been given the chance to work on a Comic Landscape Project.
Using comics as inspiration, technical drawings, discussions and photographs have been for regenerating the North of Solihull. This is exciting and innovative approach to tackle issues that rise in anti social behavior.
Happy hills for villagers and passers to soak up our distinct landscapes in the sun.
Birmingham - Nottingham - Sheffield - Manchester - South Port, West midlands - Cots Wolds, Winchcombe , Kidderminster, and the Clent Hills.
Just a brief few travels to mention which has been explored.
On discussions, I have found how shape, colour, material, design effects peoples minds and well being .
