Verging

 

Verging experiments with the idea of merging, upending - Land and Sea - North and South - it has progressed through continually walking in the same very specific areas of East Lothian and South West Cornwall as the mine project and ‘collecting’ images - but these works turn towards the ‘edge’. They also experiment with physical concerns - and ideas of interrogating the ‘body’ of the land - in some instances using 3D digital distortion.

It is impossible in the current world order not to be conscious of - and look towards borders - land is both personal and political. These borders of land and sea are in continual flux either through cyclical climate disruption or man made intervention. Each image represents North and South as visual ‘unease‘ and signifies the threat of destabilised borders and uncertainty about our existing ‘porous‘ edges’.
