An archaeologist, an anthropologist and a psychoanalyst visit Dig, Daniel Silver's Artangel project set in an abandoned, overgrown landscape in central London. Three experts encounter the split-level work for the first time and explore its many layers of possible meaning: from Freudian visions of Rome and the subconscious to the iconography of unknowable utopias.
This podcast can be enjoyed both as a standalone programme or to accompany a visit to the project itself.
