How Long Is A Piece Of Green? 2013 - 2014

An art-science project funded by Creative Scotland.

Addressing the need to consider alternative and creative ways to collect, synthesis and present research data, How Long Is A Piece Of Green? (HLIAPOG) catalogs the experience of an artist undertaking a research project in Southern Africa. Throughout the three month journey samples of time and place were taken in the form of written notes, photographs and sound and video recordings, which were subsequently coded and mapped.

HLIAPOG has been presented at Wits School of Art (University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg), the Institute of Economic Research and Innovation (Tshwane University, Pretoria), Khanya Africa Institute for Community Driven Development (Johannesburg), Visual Art Network of South Africa (VANSA) and Art Science Collaborative (ASCUS) and the School of Geosciences, Edinburgh University.
