‘’Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence’’ (Robert Macfarlane). Drawing on holistic philosophies, concepts and theories, ‘Shivelight’ explores our innate need for a relationship with the natural world. The work responds to a personal feeling of detachment from nature and a desire to explore what It means to mindfully reconnect to the outdoors. ‘Shivelight’ meaning lances of light that pierce the canopy of a woodland, documents the varying paths taken on this journey of rediscovery.
