3. Desire Lines

Issue Three of Wonderground explores the ways in which lives are shaped by both desire and line. We’re exploring ideas of ecosexuality and Derek Jarman’s garden, mapping flight paths, meandering along desire lines, tracing the story of Nikolai Vavilov, using desire as a design tool, and holding tight to the rope stretched across the deep.
