Spume - Siôn Parkinson @ 2011 Scottish Islands Expedition

"Rules: Take photographs, more than you need to, get in the habit, retrain your eye, though don’t get too accustomed to seeing things like this. Record audio, snapshots, journey-sounds (like Kefalonia!). Draw if you can, and write if you can, but only if you can, and don’t put too much pressure on yourself to do this, and remember, it’ll probably be garbage, the first lot.

"Since 1994 I have, as an active artist in Landart, on numerous occasions been inspired by thoughts of how a nomadic life might shape humans’ connection with nature. For instance, the idea of how nomads relocate between different pastures has, on a personal level , occasionally served as an example for how humans might best relate to nature..."
