Acorn, adder, ash, beech, bluebell, buttercup, catkin, conker, cowslip, cygnet, dandelion, fern, hazel, heather, ivy, kingfisher, lark, mistletoe, nectar, newt, otter, pasture and willow - the deletions. I spent a childhood running through purple carpets of bluebells, obsessing over conkers, and using acorns as fairy drinking cups; through this blossomed a love of the land and a commitment to know, value and care for it. Deletions explores alternative futures and counter narratives to capitalism; focusing on the cull of words from the Oxford Junior Dictionary that have previously described, and by their presence, conveyed meaning about the natural environment in Britain.
