Two outdoor installations created during a two-week Artist Residency at The HopBarn, Southwell, as part of the Living Landscape trail exhibition, 28 August - 28 November 2021.
Delicate net-screens, formed by horizontal threads, connecting tress. They look like tender, fragile horizontal threads of sky, water, or even stretched blood veins - each a carrier of memories, experiences, history, energy, life: they are meditative interventions on a natural setting, creating dialogue between non-self-conscious, long-lived natural entities (trees) and a self-conscious, short-lived human entity (artist).
How to experience them? by looking at them from different angles, touching them, lying down or sitting in front of them - simply observing them, influencing our perception of the surrounding landscape, feeling more present and connected with the natural environment.
