TEIFI is a long-term body of work that concerns the phenomena of the river Teifi, which Isabella lives beside in rural West Wales. The series aims to reflect the river’s filmic qualities and her relationship with it; photographing and walking through its surroundings day to day since June 2016. The work conceptually revolves around the idea of the "sensory plate of perception" through the lens. This opens up a philosophical enquiry into the phenomenology of transparency, perception and duration, which collectively form the Teifi phenomena. It’s been made sensitively in response to the environment and has become a series of painterly meditations, expressing the Teifi’s timeless environmental energies in order to convey the same experience Isabella had when making it.
