The Fielden Project Abstract

For me the landscape is a place of recovered memory, the photograph of the person in the landscape the layering of that recovery. As such the character of the piece is not a ghost or a spirit, but an invention, the impossibility of a real person existing throughout many moments – here a character in the literary tradition, simultaneously retraces the past and moves outwards, passing through history, fact, imagination and memory, into the present proposed by the image and sequence.
