On World Environment Day 2021, the Oak Project launched its first artist commission hosted at YSP by Heather Peak and Ivan Morison.

Responding to the question 'Can art save us from extinction?', the artists have developed a sculptural space made of natural materials including timber and thatch that acts as an extended open pavilion and becomes a framework and quiet space set within nature. 'Silence – Alone in a World of Wounds' is installed alongside Upper Lake at YSP within a stand of birch trees and aims to create solitary communion with the natural world.
