Hollow is a piece commissioned by Situations, an organisation which supports site specific art projects, created by Katie Paterson, and is situated in the grounds of Bristol University. It includes a sample of every type of wood in existence. The range of colours was amazing from deep reds, dark browns to almost white. You enter the piece through a small hole in the side and find yourself in a trunk like space, surrounded by these hanging pieces of wood, almost like roots burrowing down. It also smelt beautiful.

Situations also commissioned Sanctum , a Theaster Gates project where a space was built and hosted performances of sound and spoken work for twenty four hours over twenty four days.
