The Ecological Self — A Lens-based Inquiry
MetadataShow full metadata
This lens-based research project explores a deep personal connection with a familiar coastal site. I am interested in exploring the ways in which different lens-based media can facilitate a reciprocal exchange between the self and the land, a relationship. The overarching intention is to explore what might constitute an ecological-self emerging out of embodied lived experience. As such, this research project is underpinned by an ecological phenomenology that promotes embodied and affective sensitivity for the rhythms of the more-than-human world. The aim is to recognise the environment as a participatory agent in my practice, liberated from the colonising processes of rigid meaning that I might inadvertently be imposing upon the land.
