2014–2015
Burton Art Gallery and Museum   Devon, England

“Following an initial field visit in October last year to gather ideas and images, I returned to Green Cliff in March this year to make a photographic survey of Bideford Black in situ, and a performance at the foot of the cliff. My survey focussed on the mineral’s attached and detached states – from embedded seam site to autonomous material – documenting its physical and ephemeral qualities, in addition to observing the geology of the cliff face. From the guesthouse in Bideford I walked to Green Cliff each day, gathering ideas in the country lanes toward the sea. During the first rainy days of arriving, I observed the cliff painting itself with washes of deep dark black over grey. It was at that point that I realised I was there to witness painting and drawing as a natural event – and from then on, I would only be mining the mineral with concepts and cameras.”

2012–2013
Ironbridge Gorge Museums   Shropshire, England

“During November last year and April this year, I spent a period of four weeks living and working in the countryside around Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire along a six-mile stretch of the River Severn. Staying at a guesthouse in Coalbrookdale, and a hostel in Coalport, I made a series of journeys by foot to find evidence of the sea bed high up in the woods above the river, and several hidden monuments along the gorge. This publication is a catalogue of water encountered during walks around Benthall Edge Wood and Lincoln Hill. I explored the landscape searching for signs of human interaction and intervention, surveying the locale for sites, objects and details to describe activities that take place either side of the river.”

2012
Rednile Projects Factory Nights programme   Newcastle, England

“In July this year, I spent four days exploring the Eston Hills in Cleveland, UK, with writer Dr Adam Stock from Durham University. We worked on a collaborative project that mapped this multi-use landscape, making a series of walks and field recordings. I made a large number of photographic field studies in the area, and Adam produced a series of text fragments – both pieces of work explored ideas of past, present and future – to create the experimental map work Ever Present.”

2012
Joya: arte + ecología   Almería, Spain

“In April this year, I spent two weeks exploring the Parque Natural de Sierra María–Los Vélez in Almería, Spain – an environment described as ‘Mediterranean alpine’. I stayed at Cortijada Los Gázquez, an off-grid farmhouse just north of Vélez-Blanco, a sparsely-populated mountainous region situated in northern Andalucía. I made a series of different walks to collect rocks and ideas – producing work in the field, and in the studio space on site. I was especially interested in the colours of the landscape and how the light moved throughout the day. I made a large number of photographic field studies in the area, in addition to stage 4 of An Atlas of Walks, and two new pieces – Tierras and Estudio de Campos – both a series of watercolour studies”

2012
Space Invaders   Kent, England

“In February this year, I spent a period of two weeks living and working along the reclaimed land around Faversham and Graveney (Ham Marshes, Nagden Marshes, Cleve Marshes and Graveney Marshes) in Kent between Oare and Whitstable. Staying in a bunk barn in the countryside south-east of the town of Faversham, I made a series of journeys by foot, to trace the tidal waterways of the creeks that flow into and out of The Swale. This publication is a catalogue of water encountered during these walks on the Saxon Shore Way. I explored the landscape searching for signs of human interaction and intervention, surveying the locale for sites, objects and details to describe activities that take place alongside the creek.”

Territoires Émergents / Emerging Territories   Nord–Pas-de-Calais, France

“In July and August, I spent a period of six weeks living and working in the Parc Naturel Transfrontalier du Hainaut (the Parc Naturel Régional Scarpe-Escaut in France and the Parc Naturel des Plaines de l’Escaut in Belgium). Camping each night close to the centre of the park near Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, I made a series of 24 journeys by bicycle, covering over 1400 kilometres, to trace the main waterways of the Scarpe and the Escaut that flow into and out of the territory. I explored the landscape searching for signs of human interaction and intervention, surveying the territory for sites, objects and details to describe activities that take place within the borders of the park.”
