Wool & Steel. (2019) is a conceptual exploration into the overlooked darkness of Britain’s rural, and its unspoken melancholy beauty.

The constant contrast between hard and soft, our connection to the land or lack of, and its relation to a wider sense of national unease and uncertainty.

The title aims to sum up much of the project’s themes. It is about nature and the manmade, the delicate and the powerful, the fleeting and the concrete, the myth of history and the ambiguity of the future. The endless juxtapositions that exist within the countryside that perhaps make us uncomfortable in an age where we seek constant certainty.

This project seeks to encourage the belief that we are intrinsically linked with nature, while also inspire a more realistic respect for it. There is a danger to viewing it as separate, removed, or idealised.
