‘I’m interested in our psychological disconnect, (mis) representation and perception of nature. Immediately, I wanted to treat the one-day residency as a kind of experiment. I’m going to ignore the inflatable ball, treating it as a blind spot, a scotoma on the landscape. I’ll spend the day using the Weather Station as a compositional tool, taking photographs and drawing studies on Narroways Hill – my local green space, which is also socially diverse, and a hotspot for biodiversity in Bristol – these I will develop into functional blind spot tests.
I’ve been getting to know the people who look after this place, by volunteering for the Narroways Millennium Green Hill Trust, even forming a small St. Werburghs drawing group. Alongside the day’s main mission, it feels apt to invite local people and others from further afield up onto ‘the mound’ (as it’s commonly known), and facilitate collective drawing en plein air.’ Laurie Lax
