Marking the Temporal, 2016
This project started as a look at transience. It was to follow the differences between analogue and digital mark-making from a local perspective and use data, landform comparisons and other sources to mark these changes over time. Marking the Temporal was to consider critical issues of environment, wilderness and change through a visual dialogue that aimed to unpack ideas of nostalgia, the Sublime, place and nature as a part of landscape transience. The work has its culmination in pocketing the landscape taking it away with me and keeping it for later to share with those I choose in a way I choose to present it. How do we mark the temporal in a situation like this? How do you pocket the whole experience? Are we filtering the experience or providing ourselves with an opportunity to look closer at it? It is a project that has raised more questions that it has answered for me but it also gave me the opportunity to contemplate the transience of life, the marks we make and to indulge in dwelling on the loss of a loved one who I believe kept asking questions as times changed.
