The publication Tide features in the exhibition of the same name as part of the Space Invaders commissions in Kent. After the exhibition, the publication will be used by Art at the Centre as part of Swale Borough Council’s regeneration programme – the purpose of which is to make connections between the natural areas along the creek and its relationship with the communities that border it.

See Art at the Centre for more details about this publication, or Fieldwork Folio to see the layout and publishing details, alternatively it is available to buy here.

Whilst I have traversed the trail for water, I have also made work under the theme of Barriers. For more information, please visit my Mappalogue site.

The Ham Marshes are covered in shallow pools suspended by soft undulating grassy grazing land.

I have a Tudor barn at my disposal for this residency in Faversham, Kent. It used to be the town’s food store. Now it is home to Sea Cadets. I liked the dots on the floor. I’m not sure what they mean, but it got me thinking of the word ‘unit’.

    

In early February, I started to walk the Saxon Shore Way with my cameras looking for images to describe the marshlands around Faversham. When I returned the next week to make the third part of the work snow had happened in between…

This made the walk into Faversham from the bunk barn interesting…

 

The SS Way is a long distance path that traces the coastline of Kent. I am interested in the points between Teynham and Whitstable, taking in Conyers Creek, Faversham Creek and The Swale.

A reminder of where I began…

Yesterday, I found out that my application for the Space Invaders project with Art at the Centre was successful.

I presented my work to a panel of four people, all partners for the project, in the UK on the 10th January 2012. The panel included:

Nicole Mollett, lead artist for Art at the Centre | Kate Wood, arts officer for Economy and Community Services at Swale Borough Council | Mrs Dale Alexander, chairman, and Bryan Taylor, 1st Lt. acting officer in charge, represented TS Hazard and the Faversham Sea Cadets.
