Sense

To bend the ear to silence is to discover how seldom it is there. Always something moves. When the air is quite still, there is always running water… But now and then comes an hour when the silence is all but absolute, and listening to it one slips out of time. (Nan Shepherd, The Living Mountain. 2011 ed.)

Intro

This project looks at the links between landscapes and buildings, and considers environment and location in the context of contemporary and historical land use. It seeks imaginative and visual evidence that landscapes have a significant role to play in the stories museums tell us about time and place.

Plan

I propose to connect the museums in Ironbridge Gorge to their surrounding landscape through photographic survey, fieldwork and mapping. The project will create pathways, both imaginative and physical for museum visitors to explore the outdoor spaces surrounding the museum buildings. I will conduct a site-responsive survey of the natural and cultural landscape of Ironbridge Gorge, collecting data, monitoring and mapping the place, its weather, people and characteristics. Using a methodology of slow travel, field surveys will collect data that escapes conventional cartography and map-making technology.
