IDEA: A photographic and audible study of nature.

WHAT: 'Nash Point / Monk Nash' is a photographic, phonographic and electro-acoustic study of a stretch of the Glamorgan coastline recorded over a year. The area is hostile to humans: unstable collapsing stones, strong currents and low frequency rumble, give it a sense of otherness. The area fluctuates between stillness and violence, quiet and noise: noise that silences the internal monologue. On a calm day the sound of the lone gong buoy resonates clearly and carries to the shore. The walk from Nash Point down to Monk Nash can be eerily peaceful, and yet instability always hangs in the air.

WHY: The imposing expanse of nature, yet silent and raw at the same time, are reflected in black and white photography. Enhanced by the audio it gives the work an extra texture and dimension.
