Tue Greenfort - The Feeder Canal Colony
Tue Greenfort’s permanent commission converted a disused shipping container into a fully functioning sand martin roost for an overlooked area of Bristol’s urban landscape. In providing a habitat for this protected migratory bird species, Greenfort subtly questioned contemporary society’s systems of regulation and consumption, using the birds as a allegory for political and social hierarchies.
This 14-page publication designed by Foreground’s regular collaborator designer Daren Newman features an insightful critical text by Laura Mansfield, comprehensive images of the project and also a ‘Species Observation Record’ for the reader to observe birds in the field.
