An absolutely wonderful day with Rebecca, Claire, Sara, Kenji, Josepa, Alison and Teresa as we went off in search of our ALL2015 Satellites. The weather was perfect and we were not disappointed! So much great work to see.

We started at the Sidgwick Site and found work by Abi Spendlove, Collective Investigations, Rachel WoollerAga and Sean, Rhiannon Williams, plus Mute Melodies from two years ago by Christine Kettaneh which is still in situ.

After stopping to see Dingbats at Jesus Lock and the entrance to the Cambridge Nuclear Bunker, we were treated to a guided tour by Eric Marland of the Parish of the Ascension Burial Ground where he has his studio. Eric told us that he had the idea for his work for 10 years before being able to realise it through ALL. Thanks Eric!

Finally, we called in to Cambridge Artworks to find some fab signage by Susie Johnson (a more than worthy successor to last year’s acclaimed Afloat and Adrift), before saying goodbye to our farthest flung committee member Sara, who flew in from Bosnia Herzegovnia to be with us for the last few days. Thank you Sara for all your help on the project.

Rebecca assures us that there will be more road trips to follow, but in the meantime, do go and see for yourself, we are delighted and very lucky to have so much exceptional art in Cambridge.
