Negotiating Terrain

LauraHopes_WeatherStation09

The Weather Station commission proffered for me the opportunity to use the orb as a prism through which to experience and negotiate a terrain, to offer a highly controlled and contained experience of a landscape. I have negotiated access to a highly manufactured yet sublime landscape owned by Imerys, the china clay corporation based in St Austell. Last week, following months of planning I was able to make my maiden voyage in the blue and white lunar landscape of Imerys’ Blackpool Pit, and will be creating a sound and moving image installation to be displayed as part of Portland’s B-Side festival in September.
