Blog Art Spy > Research residency

A track of dust and rock

Climbs above villages and farms

Past worked land and close-knit pine

And broken walls of bright dry stone

To fence

And chain

Hides and holds a hole of industry gone


A quarry site

Grows over with grasses and scrub

Hard-stemmed plants determined to stay

In the hollow

Where moisture gathers

In shadows

And metre-high walls of cleaved bedrock

Exposed – reveals

The character of small-scale extraction

Where roots now find air

Follow water


And buildings – clustered and re-formed

Tell stories of fire and liquid rock

Arches re-purposed

Frame history evolving

Natural material

Made visible

Scattered – across


A rethinking

Of permanence

And processing of time
