This interview took place inside the National Arts Education Archive at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (NAEA) in November 2014. Whilst there is a necessary focus on Hester Reeve's most recent project YMEDACA - a re-mapping of Yorkshire Sculpture Park through the features of Plato's 'Academos' - the dialogue also moves its way through the archive's important role in the process and formation of the project. We were keen to hold our discussion inside the archive itself; to allow the space to hold us while we negotiated the terrain of sculptural thinking. This was our first meeting and what follows is a partial transcription of our three-hour discussion. We would like our exchange to honour the 30 year-anniversary of the NAEA.
