Project Description

Upstream

Gibson Mill, Hardcastle Crags, National Trust, West Yorkshire. Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, 2014.

‘Upstream’ is a site-specific body of mixed media work exploring how water influences the character of the landscape in and around the uplands of the South Pennines. The project built on research as a Leverhulme Artist in Residence with water@leeds, University of Leeds.

The work was based on dialogue with the scientists who study the upland environment, ‘Upstream’ offers a unique insight into how upland habitats and their management affect water quality and carbon storage.
