Hothouse, art.earth Dartington, November 2019
Paleoarchaeologist Suzi Richer and I collaborated on a shared enquiry of the River Dart. Suzi’s focus on pollen, combined with my focus on water, caused us to consider our separate interests from new perspectives. Subsequently, I secured a commission for the Arts Institute, Plymouth, based on these exchanges, called The Underside of Time. This short moving image work will be screened as part of the Arts Institutes’ Legacies & Futures digital programme in Autumn 2020.
