The Enigma of Experience
In working with the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/ research/activity/bifor/index.aspx) this body of work aims to visually study a location designed for environmental research and combine that with the exploration of environmental politics. Through the development of the project, I aim to consider how an artist might begin to translate these explorations into a visual medium. How do we experience our natural surroundings? How does this translate to the secondary experience of it through the imagery? By using a variety of photographic formats, I hope to begin developing an understanding of how an art practice can lead to social and political change. Can it effectively aid the understanding of our current climate crisis?
