EVERY LAST MOUTHFUL

Every Last Mouthful, an illuminated manuscript, illustrates the decline of all pollinators, especially bees, which threatens our food supply. The manuscript amalgamates handwritten script, graffiti and drawing, reflecting artists Chatwin : Martin’s fourteen-year international collaborative art/science field and laboratory research on three continents with three leading entomologists.
Most recently the project has expanded to include research with conservationists, scientists, economists, ecologists, and historians, and recognises their dedication in striving to provide innovative and radical solutions as to how species and habitat loss can be reversed in the face of total inertia from the international political community.
