Polleniser is an accumulative development of the Pollen project, inspired by the migration of spores and pollen across the landscape. This variant stems from plant species that contain blue pigment within the chemical structure of their leaves. The physical forms of the plants and the creative uses of the pigment that they contain provide a basis for an abstracted tale of discovery and loss. Design concepts were drawn from the use of flax and blue pigment in global cultures, with a particular emphasis on the styles and prin patterns found in Slovak Blue techniques.

The performers are carried through the event like airborne plankton, swirling and dancing the repeating actions of a ceaseless narrative. Polleniser progresses through places and bodies, animated through performance, costume and music. The project passed through Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dumfries, Falkirk, Dunbar, Balloch and Budapest.


Here is a link to an album released on Bandcamp in December 2014 as a document of our POLLEN and Polleniser projects:
