The Path is an original perimeter path that was connected to an RAF air base from the 2nd world war. Nature has taken hold and re-wilded this beautiful walkway which nurtures an ever changing ecosystem. I have walked this path for over 25yrs and for the past two years I have given it my full attention. Chance intervention is my methodology, looking carefully with attention and detailed observation of seasonal changes. My practice is based on building up a relationship, a knowing of this site and from this ideas and art emerges. The project will continue through to 2022.
