Landscape Mindscape was a collaboration with local artist Louise Kernaghan, in a piece contributing to her MA Art and Social Practice course. Louise and I share an interest in landscape and nature connection, having worked with similar themes in our individual practice. We wanted to turn our many conversations into a collaborative project.
We gathered a group of participants and walked a 4.8km walk through Glen Nevis. En route, we facilitated four 'connecting' exercises, designed to allow the participants to experience their surroundings deeply and using all five of their senses.
The work culminated in a collective poem, made by asking each participant to note one sentence to describe the experience.
