Object Annexe :: Stonehenge update

The henges just don't stop coming!

In news just in from Past Thinking Blog, plans are afoot to build a “21st century monument” in Wiltshire, based upon an interpretation of Stonehenge. The new monument will be built from stone shipped from Colin’s quarry in Preseli, Wales, which will be used to build the inner circle. Other types of stone sourced from around the world to complete the trilithons and other circles. The project aims to use modern and traditional methods to raise the stones, and community involvement will be a big part of it. The stone circle will be aligned with the equinoxes and solstices, and hopes to be a “living laboratory for academics as well as an educational visitor attraction”.

One of those projects where you do not want to drop something on your foot.

We who have moved in community arts circles have known for decades that "the community" is mostly used as a source of slave labour.

By reconstructing an object originally built by slaves (or slaves to some benighted religious ideal) using traditional techniques, this project is a concealed homage to the essence of community arts.
