People and projects – art and science!
The Living Field works with photographers, artists, designers and others to stimulate new works based on crops, plants and landscape.
Several new projects will begin 2014.
- Jean Duncan Artist
- Scaperiae – images by Nora Queseda and Graham Begg
- Reno by Grissel – a fox’s eye on the last five millennia
- dundeeastro – images from Dundee Astronomical Society
Examples of work
The group of four images below, painted by the artist Jean Duncan, merge aspects of farmed landscapes with motifs from ancient cereals and weeds from the Living Field.
The images are taken from a stage backdrop painted for an opera by the composer Handel.
Nora Quesada Pizarro and Graham Begg have been manipulating and merging spatial data into digitised landscapes – Scaperiae. Here is one of their ‘small worlds’ depicting structures in arable-grass landscapes.
The fox Reno has been around for a long time, long before the first farmers and the last wolf. Reno is still here, with a crafty, bold, philosophical and (we hope) entertaining, take on life, drawn by Grissel.
Dundee Astronomical Society have an observatory on site and always put on a great display at our Open Days. Here is one of their images of solar flares.
