Landotype, 2019

A large photograph directly printed onto grass. Using corrugated sheeting, the light from the sun was blocked from the grass over a period of 8 days. The length of the line corresponds to the depth of the old mines at Crookhaven. The audience were encouraged to walk the line to imagine the depths that the miners would have descended each day.

180 x 0.6 m

Landotype was commissioned by Lay of the Land during Tombolo 19, a site-responsive residency in Ireland. The work was a collaboration between myself and artist Antonia Beard, Brenda Kearney, Melanie King, Millie Egan and Sofia Arredondo.
