Kinder is a return to a childhood view of the horizon line from a bedroom window. Retracing these steps up on to the Kinder Scout plateau reveals a conflict between personal and cultural memory. The project interweaves imagery from the walk itself, personal 'Memory Map' text and a witness account of the Mass Trespass 1932 provided by a 'Special Correspondent' from the Manchester Guardian. The newspaper and personal memory accounts seem straightforward. Yet how we memorialize and record historical fact would politicise the event to this day, with the emergence of myth and legend becoming embedded within the landscape itself.
