HaikuMoo was developed as a commission for the Museum of English Rural Life based on the 1951 edition of Farmers Weekly as part of ‘51 Voices‘. The workshop has been delivered to online audiences, via Zoom, and in class room environments in schools.
The workshop is designed specifically for 7-11 year olds and family groups with the goal of educating and informing new audiences about dairy cows.
Participants are guided through a drawing process which references instructional artworks by E-Fluxes in tandem with the exquisite corpse drawing method to draw a cow.
Once participants have drawn their cow, whilst learning some ‘cow facts’ along the way, the cows (drawings of) can be sent to the collecting yard ready to be put out to pasture in the virtual field.
