Kieren Reed’s sculpture External Room (1) was placed in the orchard from June 2014 to February 2015. It draws on Morris’ concept of the garden as a series of outside rooms, as well as the architectural vernacular at Red House. Reed’s structure was made available to host artist and writers as studio, workroom, meeting space, and venue.
The Nomadic Reading Room, a peripatetic library of artist’s publications collected by Connie Butler occupied Morris’ Studio inside the Red House, along with writings on and by Morris for the duration of the project.
