In July 2019 I started an intervention in the landscape in the form of cairn building with plastic detritus found on a small area of sunken lane used by recreational vehicles and walkers. Rather than always selecting pieces to work with in the studio, I decided to work on site with material that is either too big to lug home or gets overlooked for other reasons. As these piles of rubbish have grown and changed, I have been recording them photographically. So far, I have observed the elements having a dispersing effect. Gravity in league with wind and rain pulls the pieces downhill, redistributing them along the way. There is already a fascinating liveliness emerging where one doesn't expect to find it. I intend this project to be a long term one. I am publishing my observations monthly on a blog at
