Traditional fine art practice and digital immersive technologies combine, exploring how the walking body maps visual and sonic traces enabling the senses to reveal unseen subterranean landscapes.
Porosity seeks to reveal unseen connections between invisible landscape and the walking body.
Porosity is a conversation with subterranean landscapes, the invisible shaping the visible.

More than a century of mining has left a void beneath Cheshire’s surface. Salt’s demand and commercial value out weighed any concern for the impact of mining and extraction on the landscape. Salt has many properties, which make it valuable but critically it flows and dissolves, running silently beneath the surface brine runs shape the landscape. Subsidence hollows have historically been present as a result of brine extraction and continue to appear anywhere where water and salt connect. Invisible energy flowing below the surface carving out ever-changing topographies.
