The Custody Code

A film installation by artist Amanda Loomes, revealing stories from the working forest

The Custody Code reveals the rarely-seen story of sustainable timber production and the unique perspectives of the men and women involved, from seed bank to sawmill. Over the duration of a year Amanda has observed and interviewed people working in our forests across the country to create this human-centred reflection on sustainable forestry.

The film will be shown in a specially designed wooden installation at selected forests starting from summer 2019.
