Earth Story – Salt Marsh
In November 2021 I began an in-depth study of a salt marsh on the edge of Morecambe Bay. The work sources photography, video, sound recordings and drawings that I have collected whilst walking extensively around and across the area, along with ongoing research about salt marshes, the species that live there, and why they are important. Whilst making the work I’ve developed an even deeper appreciation of the earth and its ability to adapt. However, the salt marsh and surrounding mudflats are eroding at an alarming rate, transforming the area beyond recognition.
I’m currently in the process of sifting through the work and experimenting with ways of disseminating it. So, this is very much a work that is evolving…. Ideally, at some point, I’d like to develop it into a project that involves my local community.
