with video projection.
The garden is a constructed view; a three dimensional environment where
the “images” are in constant change with the seasons. Frozen
Garden is an investigation of a panorama image of the garden at Museum
of Garden History.

|In an hour the video pans through a path with a few people
across the Knot Garden then past the Tomb of ‘Captain Bligh of The
Bounty’ where one can see the gardener in the background and finally
past the relief on the side of the Family Tomb of the Tradescants. On the
tomb we see a crocodile, shells, and a view of some Egyptian buildings which
represents images from the travels of the Tradescant family. The panorama
completes twelve rounds in a day in accordance with the Local Lambeth legend
that states that if the tomb is danced around twelve times as Big Ben strikes
midnight a ghost appears.
