Complex Wood is a reflective project observing the complexity of life in my local Yorkshire woodlands and considering if this can tell us anything about our own communities and how we live.
I am inspired by the idea that landscape evolves in the woodland according to the interactions between the different inhabitants. Sometimes human intervention makes its mark in, say, by a footpath, but mostly the decades of growth and decay are the most evident feature. Look closely and we can see the wonders of elemental relationships, for example the affects of air and water, and also biological interactions shaping the way things are.
It is said that trees live in community with one another and are connected by underground systems. Perhaps we are not so different.
