Example Projects

The Prospectory enjoys having an eclectic mix of projects on the go at any time. It stops us getting bored!

In early 2022, The Prospectory ran a domestic heat trial in 12 homes in rural Wales – its aim to explore how heating people rather than heating space can help both reduce energy and keep people warmer. Towards the end of 2022, Alison interviewed 20 UK households on their experience of using Infrared as their main source of heating. Again, my focus is on exploring ways to keep people warm without wasting energy.

In Spring 2022, The Prospectory started a natural regeneration experiment in a field attached to an upland wood in Talybont on Usk. We are photographing and surveying what happens and documenting our occasional interventions.

In Spring 2022, Alison’s artist colleagues in Larks & Ravens worked with 6th form Brecon Beacons college students to create alternative narratives and self portraits to bring the challenge of different voices into the Victorian Courtroom at Brecon y Gaer Museum.  An exhibition ran in y Gaer for a month in April 2022.  At the end of the summer, the Larks & Ravens reproduced one of Wales’ National artworks onto the outside windows of  y Gaer. The National Welsh Collection of art belongs to everyone in Wales so our idea was to bring it outside for everyone to help paint and enjoy.

Some of The Prospectory’s past projects include:-
