Visible Knowledge in the Imagined Landscape

Keywords: Praxis, Co-creation, Materiality, Landscape, Experimental film


This paper discusses the value of process, productive tension and creative limitation in the revision and development of a practice-based research methodology, which, through methods of drawing, photography and film, reveals a dialogue between researcher and participants as co-creators of a visual document. The Cornish landscape is the subject and centre for this participatory arts-based research project, where visual artefacts made by participants are collated and reinterpreted by the researcher into a non-fiction film, overlaying 16mm film footage to collaboratively document the landscape. Joining experimental film techniques, visual ethnography and social research, images act as material objects of engagement, where a connection between creator and landscape is evidenced through the materiality of the images and the film grain.
