Blueprint for Happiness
Blueprint for Happiness is a generous and anarchic collaborative dining event. At its heart is a dinner service currently consisting of over four hundred pieces of ceramics, cast from meaningful objects; a rock from a river, the ear of a friend, a coconut washed up on beach, an oyster-shell from the opening of a show, an old football found in a bog. Each time the dinner is held new pieces are made, new stories emerge and the service expands.

Heather and Ivan Morison have established an ambitious collaborative practice over the past decade that transcends the divisions between art, architecture and theatre. Their works range across a diverse set of media and approaches which sees their work manifest itself both within the gallery but also within wider physical and social arenas, from a nomadic theatre company to the creation of large-scale public spaces, explicitly engaging in the dialogue around redefining the limitations of where and how it is possible for artists to work.
