diG.shaKe.riSeandblEEed,myloVe. questions the potency of demonstration, revolt and sacrifice as an instrument for policy change, against the backdrop of the economic downturn, cuts, job losses, protest, strikes, riots and occupations. 

The project is a hub for the creation of artwork and the fostering of debate.

The project's Wordpress blog and Facebook Page contain a selected assembly of news reports, analyses and commentaries published in the press since 2010 (the so-called 'Springtime' of student protest in the UK) in response to events on the ground. 

There are photographs that form part of the artwork, architectural sketches, hundreds of work-in-progress (wip) photos, commissioned articles and audio and video pieces.

diG.shaKe.riSeandblEEed,myloVe. Is created within the ambit of conteXtism– a manifesto-driven initiative aimed at illuminating the interrelationships between art and the social, political, economic, religious, ethical and legal contexts in which it is made and displayed.

In the belief that art has the power to unravel the complexity, intricacy and multi-dimensionality of prevailing humanand social reality and the forces that shape it, artwork produced as part of the project serves as a trigger for debate, and for tackling questions about thewave of protest we have witnessed in the last few years.
