Exploring the deep-time histories in an unloved park in Exeter city centre, Red Mountain (Rougemont Gardens) imagines what this landscape was like when there was an erupting volcano in it. From bubbly boulders to tropical climate vegetation, traces of the past are scattered in the grounds. A rumbling can be heard from deep underground, and steam slips out of vents in the borders of the gardens. How can we use imaginative storytelling to reconnect with disused spaces and to see them from a different perspective?
