of the daffodil planting.

"One of the most arresting pieces of work in the exhibition
was an old metal spade - itself a potent symbol of fertility,
of growth, of life, almost as much as being the gravedigger's
tool of choice. A small rectangular hole had been cut into the
spade and a tiny video monitor, no more than a few inches wide,
had been inserted into the created void. The piece was beautiful,
poignant and quite quite arresting."
Eddie Chambers

"The piece is entrancing - I can't help wandering back to check
their progress. The work is typical of the way Lovejoy marries
nature and technology."
