Meeting TQ 168 323 Text Work

Walking the Reserve

A Text Work is published on this blog, see pages
Title: Meeting - TQ 168 323 

Part One with Helen and Camilla

A changing view, a walk in photographs, immersed in my surroundings, paying attention to what I see and hear, a type of psychogeography, listening, observing and finding connections between the urban and rural cultural 
environment of this place.

 Part Two with Alison

A collaboration at Warnham Nature Reserve

I am meeting with friends to embark on a new art collaboration at a central location that sits between us all. 
Warnham Nature Reserve.

Our response will be immediate and individual.

My interest is to observe and react to visual or sound moments or interactions that arise as I walk around the location.

My cognition is not as a motionless observer but is motion sensitive and site specific. Made by the direct and physical response we all have as we encounter our surroundings, it is a selective process for every viewer that depends entirely on personal experiences, desires and purpose.

It is my hope that the presence I find here will reflect back into history, culture and place.
