The Rootless Forest, a landscape and soundscape, is a new project by Beth Derbyshire, Wheatley Fellow, Birmingham Institute of Art and Design. The Rootless Forest is a mobile artwork, a mini-forest made of real trees and soil planted on a barge that travels at walking pace along the Birmingham and Black Country Canals. From The Rootless Forest we hear recorded stories about adjustment, homecoming and relocation told by two families from the military and UK Afghan communities in Birmingham. If the soil beneath our feet shifts, what happens when that foundation shifts and how does our understanding of home alter?
