Abstract

Initial ‘on the ground’ fieldwork evolves into a studio based process of representation where multiple sets of concerns are at play. Understanding this process as the development of another kind of fieldwork with the representational matter itself as a form of ‘field’ allows us to delay the distinction between that which is analytical and that which is proposed. Inventive modes of representation animate the ground forming a series of dynamic operations where multiple combinations work across a range of appropriate scales that are capable of structuring and empowering the landscape. They reinforce its identity, strengthen its metabolisms, and eventually add value systems of stewardship, protection, and care. Their necessary dynamism contributes decisively to their complexity, in the same way that it would be difficult for us to imagine a painting challenging its own canvas and the frame that supports it.
