Figure ground is a public realm artist development agency.
We have been working to research current public realm practice across the South East and have coordinated a number of artist’s residencies/network events.
Throughout 2011, we have been working on ‘Track Changes’, an Arts Council England funded research and organisational development project.
This has included visiting a number of public realm organisations to see how they organize themselves, share ideologies, build networks across the south east and drink tea. These organisations include Artangel, Banner Repeater, Fernymwoods Contemporary, PlaCE (UWE), Stour Space, LV21, and Medway Council (INSITE project).
We also organized a collaborative artists residency on the LV21 a lightship in Gillingham, for 20 artists and are currently working with IN-SITE ( Medway Council's major public realm commission series) as artist mentors.
The team includes artists - Jon Adams, Jo Thomas, Katy Beinart, Jack Brown and Laura Krikke.
the posts below archive our work so far - we are currently building a new site -www.figuregroundprojects.co.uk.

As part of the evaluating, the Figure Ground suitcase was finally emptied of its contents and reorganised into a spick and span new model with all the collected picnic blankets of the year's work, as well as our fabulous book/deck of cards and essential stationary. It now awaits further adventures....
