Forestry Data 2015

A project bringing together scientific and ecological perspectives of the forest in order to deepen our understanding of them.

Fieldwork involved a trip at Dundreggan conservation estate in Glen Moriston and time with technicians at Carbomap, who use state-of-the-art remote sensing technologies to map forests. During this time ‘data’ was collected in the form of images, sound and video recordings, written text and photographs. This data was subsequently ‘processed and analysed’ to create an artwork that presented the two ways of managing forests, as understood through the eyes of an artist. 

A two screen video projection was shown in a lecture theatre in the Geography Department at Royal Holloway University of London, to present and discuss practice-led geographical research within the academy in new ways.

With contributions from Professor Iain Woodhouse, University of Edinburgh, and Doug Gilbert, Operations Manager at Dundreggan Conservation Estate.
