Fieldwork and Other Landscape Stories is an exhibition of photography and sound, exploring language, our perception of nature and the landscape. The project examines what we can and cannot see. It invites questions about how we use our senses, how we imagine and how memory and language plays a large role in perceiving our surroundings. Made as part of the year-long artist residency at Watts Gallery - Artists' Village, the project was shown in the solo exhibition 'Fieldwork and Other Landscape Stories' at Watts Contemporary Gallery, Oct 2017.
