An ongoing research project in a 10 metre section of Byway 745 to establish a kind of “observatory” examining the whole space from the trees at the top of the banks down into the chalk trench of the track and up again. A cross section of the geological, biological and human history of this "critical zone" – of air, soil and rock. Data from maps and GPS apps have been recorded to pinpoint the space and more research into its history will follow but the real starting point is on-site drawing. So far the project has yielded a series of drawings, rubbings, collections of objects and a terrarium. It is expanding on previous work in the same location and forms the subject of blogposts as it evolves. See
