For the residency Alison was based in Suffolk's coastal town of Lowestoft, which formerly had a large herring fishing industry. "The coastline around Lowestoft is rapidly eroding and will be greatly impacted by rising sea levels due to climate change; the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is all the more relevant for locals". Alison engaged 100 residents in making tiles, with a diamond motif that reference both the shapes within fishing nets and the new style pylons. The project, Earth Wind & Fired celebrates “what Lowestoft has always done - harness the wind".
