Haiku Seats Watermead Estate Thurmaston

Haiku fragments built into the urban landscape via metal benches designed and made by Richard Thornton with metal cut text out of splacist / psychogeographic haiku walks by Paul Conneally through Thurmaston and surrounds with local people.

The seats / benches are now installed in the centre of the new build mix of social and non-social housing in the community playground and social area.

The haiku walks and work directly with the community was co-ordinated by artist Jemma Bagley through Charnwood Arts.
