— Ecogeographer


I’ve moved from non-indigenous plantations to endangered sea meadows in the space of 3 years. In 2018 I will move between both with a focus on soil, saltwater swimming and communication. The territory I have to cover is rich, multi-dimensional and requires collaboration with experts in particular fields as well as working with communities who know their place.

I will have to communicate to academics through papers, NGO’s through practice-based activities such as workshopping and documenting, and to the public through drawing, exhibiting and listening. I also will slowly re-work the visual aspects of this site.

Follow the work…

#coralcommunities / SEA meadows, MANGROVE forests and CORAL

and watch out for the development of the following projects:

This can be an object or an image (e.g. a photograph or a picture from a newspaper/magazine), or anything else that springs to mind.’ ‘Now create a coastscape in a group, it can be an abstract idea or a simulation.’

‘The video, photographs and the making [artist led visual methods by Dominica Williamson] are about perspective taking, but also understanding each other’s perspectives and building empathy’ Louisa Evans, Senior Lecturer: Environment and Sustainability, Exeter University
