Following the conference, I submitted my chapter for publication. The rules for submission were that the paper should not exceed more than 5000 words and include a maximum of four images. The latter restriction presented an interesting challenge. I had many images taken of the meanders and, together, they formed a comprehensive documentation of these four-hour events.

Curator Sophia Hao said: ‘following this [we presented] a sequence of archival and audio installations, in which, unlike a contemporary retrospective exhibition, the focus was on the production of contemporary notes.

NOTES on a return

 

Abstract

 

This research looks at both subjective and objective ways of mediating our experience of the natural world through art and concludes that both approaches are of value. It considers art (and in particular abstract art) as a language, or text, to be read and interpreted objectively as well as a means of subjective, poetic expression. It explores the possibility that colour (as a medium that is both relative and at the same time subjective) may provide a useful link between a subjective and objective perception of the natural world.
