Serious Gaming

Ecogeographer tavelled with Dr John Martin and Andy Hughes for the second time to Turin for the third edition of the International Summer School – Learning by Game Creation – organized by a Joint Project of the Politecnico di Torino and University of California, 1st to 8th September 2019, Torino. Our eyes were further opened to how important the project we have created called TAGSCAPE is to the heritage sector and how we can learn so much from them, particularlyRead more

Aerial data, my Cloud dream

Ecogeographer’s just come back from working in Crete. Watch out for how a TAGSCAPE aerial data space will form over the coming two years through the pan European project Ruritage. This work will also impact a local pilgrimage project I am driving with three other colleagues.Read more

Why a digital journal

Ecogeographer’s digital journal helps to develop ideas and think about themes. It also talks about current projects.  This image shows an info graphic that many of us developed. It was part of the project Coral Communities. It talks about the importance of plants and place. A recurring theme that is emerging in Ecogeographer’s co-creations. In June of this year Ecogeographer’s going to Mauritius with Caroline Hattam of Plymouth Marine Laboratory to re-meet Reef Conservation and two communities it worked withRead more

Anchor Man, it’s in the letter box

#coralcommunities > #socsea2018blue > Anchor Man > Ecogeographer is starting to gather data about objects that were brought together at the business and academic conference ‘The Society and the Sea‘ via a workshop held on the banks of the Thames at Greenwich, London. Delegates were asked to bring an object from their home or from their walk to the conference that meant something to them about their coast. Some objects were left as a keepsake, some were left with instructionsRead more

Sea Meadows

#tagscape / NON-indigenous plantations, LIVED forests > #coralcommunities / SEA meadows, MANGROVE forests > SAND dunes > Ecogeographer has moved from non-indigenous plantations to endangered sea meadows in the space of 3 years. In 2018 it will move between both with a focus on soil, saltwater swimming and communication. The territory to cover is rich, multi-dimensional and requires collaboration with experts in particular fields as well as working with communities who know their place. Ecogeographer will have to communicate to academicsRead more

Ice soil – an unexpected Gyre

Alexis Rockman rocks. My dad would have treasured his round painting. Mark Dion, how you would like his curiosities, Would your mum have? Your cabinet spoke. Pam Longobardi, swimmer of caves, he would have thought you exotic, You are an archaeological goddess. Andy Hughes, you presented his room. You read her favourite, Robert Frost. The room was silent. I think? Do you now Martin Parr? is chimed, The Snow Queen glides past. Knowingly a dog stares us out, It isRead more

Summer. Autumn. Embodiment.

Yesterday Dominica Williamson of Ecogeographer photographed Autumn. Today she is reflecting on Summer. It’s been bitter sweet. Aug 1st was held without her dad. He died hours before Valentine’s Day this year. He had a summery beard, yellow and ginger streaks – excellent grey as he grew old. His death has continued to make her think about decomposing, forests, the unseen. Things she was in part thinking about already. Perhaps her sick sense knew what was coming. ‘This Summer sunshineRead more

The Giant’s Quoit

A snippet of work Ecogeographer has been designing many things for the Giant’s Quoit project such as the website, leaflets, posters and educational workshops and resources. It’s an exemplar community project and an important archaeological site – the first dig under a quoit for a long time. This Autumn it is busy designing the App, the book, the walks brochure (brilliantly researched by Ramblers) and it is developing the Oral History side things, which is helping to broaden the outreach.Read more
