Exploring the West Wales coast at Ynyslas, Ceredigion, I find materials and inspiration in abundance. Here I work directly with found materials, and record my interventions through photography and video.
Since 1949 our coast has been protected by the Coastal Erosion Act which aims to prevent the removal of naturally occurring materials, right down to the smallest pebble. Therefore I take only my memories and photographs away with me.
At the coast I find a dynamic, deep, resonant and human connection with the rock, stone, sand and clay. Through direct intervention I see how my thoughts, body and matter are one and the same, connecting me to my world and the universe at large, rooting my perception of existence at a tacit, present and sensory level.
