'Of Lost & Found' by Ellie Doney

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 'Of Lost & Found’, an online archive exploring the material history of the Phytology site by Ellie Doney.

Ellies work explores the physical properties of disregarded objects that have collected over the years, including rubbish, historical artefacts and animal material. She scrutinises this discarded matter to assemble an insightful and playful portrait of modern urban culture, blurring conventional taxonomies and value systems, creating an index of a place and its inhabitants.


“The site is a midden; a repository of marginal matter, a gap in the conscious life of the city.”
