In this research project Simon Callery addresses the following questions: how can contemporary art engage meaningfully with a rapidly changing landscape? How can art adapt and take on the challenges created by current initiatives defining land use today? How can art embrace the advances that other disciplines have made to our understanding of landscape and can contemporary art works engage us expressively in a perception of landscape as multi-dimensional, temporal and pregnant with evidence of human activity past and present? In this practice-based research, art works constitute a response to these questions. Archaeological processes in the field have informed the research.
Time spent on excavation sites has allowed emphasis to be placed on seeking art forms that communicate an equivalent for the multi-sensory experience of the material landscape in transition.
