For "Field", Gormley filled a disused warehouse with little crude humanoids made of clay, some six inches tall, which stood and stared at the viewer. I assume that the title alludes to Langland's "Piers Plowman", in which the narrator looks out over Middle-Earth (poised between Heaven and Hell) and sees "a fair field full of folk".

In the background, Gateshead's iconic brutalist multi-storey car-park, the Trinity Square centre, now demolished. Various other images on the site depict this from closer: see, for instance, NZ2563 : Gateshead multi-storey car park.
