Entering The Bardo
Whose story is the landscape? Is it mine, is it yours, is it ours? Is it the landowners or the private corporations? Or is it a story more ancient, feminine and fantastic? Starting autobiographically and working intuitively Entering The Bardo maps my reconnection to myself and to the landscape within the broader narrative of our cultural disconnection to the natural world. Through attentive ways of being and slower acts of noticing I have used writing and the camera to explore the world around me — the landscape of my childhood — and consider the potential to shift our gaze, liberate ourselves and reimagine our stories. The Tibetan concept of the Bardo is a space between worlds where transition and transformation is possible, a space without a map.
