A journey through the wildflower meadow

room 14 ECHOES

Bath
As you enter the burial ground, think, reflect and listen. 3,100 bodies lie in unmarked graves and the burial ground doesn't even exist on a current map. We attended an event in which volunteers planted a wildflower meadow to memorialise the lives lost as a result of poverty in the Bath workhouse between 1858 and 1899. "Here in this field a rich city in a rich country at the centre of the richest empire dumped the bodies of its poor." We captured audio recordings during the wildflower planting and have used these to create this immersive experience.
