I don’t think I need to add much to the images above. A week spent down in Hastings, where we recovered.

Visual weeknotes for 23rd Feb - 1st March, exploring paving in Crews Hill, Local geography and very-far-away geography (the exploits of the Mars Rover and Hubble telescope, as discussed at the Art (and/or) Science Reading Group), and experimenting in Policy Lab.Read More
Experiments to impose digital information (imagery, writing, data) onto clay. This process has been central for my art installation in the Central St Martins degree show. The ambition has been to developed a modern-day version of the ancient Babylonian cuneiforms, using digital data on geology and geography.Read More
This is my second blog regarding my residency at Joya: Arte + Ecologia. My previous blog explored 'land & environmental art'.

I was announced as University of Art London's Environment International Artist Residency Programme resident artist at Joya: arte + ecología earlier this year. This blog includes some of my preparatory work for the Residency, taking place in the Autumn. Joya is an arts led field-research centre based at the farmstead of Cortijada Los Gázquez in Andalusia, Almeria province. In preparation, it felt appropriate to review some examples of land and environmental art to try and understand if this type of thinking could inform my practice at the Joya residency.Read More

This seems to pivot around human experience and interaction with climate change, so have also included some maps on adaptive capacity/vulnerability to climate change. These ideas were developed ahead of the Imperial Science Festival event, although ultimately not used then. Storing them for a later time...Read More
This blog highlights some light research on mapping projections conducted ahead of the Imperial Science Festival. Includes maps and links to the main projections including Peters, Mercator, Robinson, Winkel Triple.Read More
