A Drawn Montage

22 May

A couple more of the drawings I did out and about on my 15 kilometre walk along the banks of the River Tawe last weekend. We stopped periodically to sketch but we also did some “walk and draw” sketching. I like working like this because it forces me to disregard detail and record the fleeting impressions of things on the move. It becomes a montage rather than a static view.

This was my first field trip for the FIRE Lab project at Swansea University. “The Freshwater Interdisciplinary Research and Engagement (FIRE) Lab started in Swansea in early 2018. The lab is supported by a Sêr Cymru Fellowship held by Steph Januchowski-Hartley, and is focused on addressing questions about human changes on freshwater ecosystems and the relationships that people have with these ecosystems in Wales and beyond.” FIRE Lab connects science and the arts in an integrated SciArt approach. It’s fascinating and I’m so pleased to be a part of it.
