The Gathering Ground
These works form a personal response to the rise of independence in my homeland Wales, and its historical connection to water. Wales has three main water supplies that supplies water to across the border. The building of these reservoirs caused damage to society and their culture in Wales, as homes and communities were submerged to gather water for another nation. Through materiality, process and contemplation, these works focus on the significance of that water and how it exists in the present. How has this water affected the land in the past, and how will it affect Wales in the future?
