Wood to World is in large part a research project with which I aim to deepen my relationship to beyond-human nature. I am experimenting with differing (aligned and contrasting) ways of thinking and practicing relation to and communication with nonhuman beings.
How do we communicate with and understand the world beyond the human?
Wood to World takes on quite a broad range of topics and questions, focused through the lens of specific places (Shoreham Woods and Kings Wood in Challock) and an ongoing engagement with these places and their diverse inhabitants through a multi-disciplinary visual art practice.
The woods are alive. Both in the brief blaze of individual lives – of insects, plants, foxes, bacteria etc – and in the continuous network of living interrelation that is played out across decades and centuries.
