She proposes to use the residency to try out ideas for a new body of work. This will engage intimately with the landscape of Dunree by focusing on the fallible shifting layers of its physical surface, both architectural and geological. She is developing a casting process which traces the form of various terrains while also subsuming part of each into the form of removable ‘skins’. This process engages with the legacy of land art, and specifically Robert Smithson’s dialectic of Site and Non-Site; a displacement of part of a site, which goes on to become 'a three dimensional map' creating both a presence and an absence.
