I am an independent artist-researcher with a background in eco/geo-sciences and landscape design. Much of my work is concerned with relationships between ecological processes, environmental change and social adaptation. Areas of particular focus include coastal/river landscapes, deep-time (geological) perspectives, routes/journeys and intangible cultural themes. My research and production methods rely on geopoetic creative fieldwork and experimental remixing of archives, recordings, data and contemporary narratives – explored in the context of both ‘slow’ and ‘intensive’ artist-residencies. Concerned with places and their possibilities, my methods include sculpture, film, sound and intermedia installation – addressing tensions, traces, transitions and environmental justice. As well my involvement with Heritage Futures, I am currently lead artist with Water-City-Bristol (AHRC-funded as part of the ‘Towards Hydrocitizenship’ research project), and continuing to develop creative responses to the Severn Estuary coastal region, as part of the ‘Sabrina Dreaming’ residency project.

Afterlives Salon

02/03/2017

This salon to accompany the current Octagon exhibition Cabinets of Consequence will explore how heritage and other related forms of conservation practices (including nuclear waste management) make futures.  How do we use material culture to stitch futures from pasts? What do we conserve? What do we get rid of? What do we allow to change? This Salon will be staged as a series of conversations across various themes currently being explored within the Heritage Futures research programme,Event held at Haldane Room, Wilkins Building , Gower Street WC1
