‘Afterlife of an Island, A Will’o-wisp’ drinking/plotting table’.

Frank Gilks (y5)

A marsh gas power plant is set up as an experimental government funded initiative to create renewable energy from flooding marshland. Workers of The Lantern Marsh scheme utilise the resources available across the flooding landscape to produce a moonshine drinking spirit. Each night they gather to scheme and plot operations required for the production of this ‘Island Spirit’.

The Pump House Table serves as a scale model of the power plant scheme on which manoeuvres can be mapped out, as well as a drinking table from which the distilled ‘Island Spirit’ can be consumed.
