During my 2 week residency along the shore of the Mawddach Estuary in West Wales, I explored the concept of human-made boundaries, and how over time, these boundaries are inevitably permeated by the environment. I worked exclusively from gathered materials from the land, working with their intrinsic qualities to explore varying scales of permanence and impermanence. Employing craft and textile led processes to subvert the patriarchal connotations of hard boundaries and land ownership, I created a series of purposefully delicate structures to interact with the environment, forming a collaboration between the work and the elemental forces within the landscape.

This is part of an on-going project exploring 'edge-water' locations and the impacts they face have over the coming years driven by climate change. I am committed to reducing my environmental impact as much as possible for the duration of this project. I will travel by bike and train, carrying with me a ‘travelling tool kit’, and use only found and gathered materials from the land to produce the artworks.
