Animal Spirits’ is a book and exhibition by Juneau Projects commissioned by Berwick Visual Arts.
The book, written and designed by the artists, tells the story of a group of survivors who, following a global technological disaster, have founded an arts and craft community within the walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. With the internet, television and other media no longer dominating people's time, the community member’s work together to find creative methods and means of surviving using the skills they each have. The story chronicles the arrival of a curator from Coniston in the Lake District, whose ideas and ambitions create disturbances in the apparent harmony of the community.
'Animal Spirits' is an ambitious project that looks at the importance of creativity and the manner in which artists and crafts people’s roles and positions shift in tandem with technological development.
The project has been made possible with support from Berwick Visual Arts, Arts Council England, and Grizedale Arts.
