Installation and Land artist Rosie Leventon has recently been making work referring to vernacular architecture - anything from termite mounds to Buddhist stupas. Endangered Dust takes as its starting point a little known aspect of the archaeology of the Isle of Portland in Dorset UK - the curious Beehive Chambers. Several of these underground prehistoric stone structures have been discovered on the island but nothing now remains except a few old photos. She made to whole piece with hundreds of layers of plywood cut by hand. There are low voltage lights inside. Commissioned by b - side
