Part 2 of 3?
When I’ve done long term landscape work in what could be called ‘wilder’ environments, you lose yourself in it, you acquire a ‘dwelling perspective’. Like Captain Vimes in Disc World, you learn to know where you are through the soles of your feet. You sense subtle differences in the landscape intuitively, and your ability to predict through what is really a sensual interaction with the landscape becomes heightened. You and the landscape start to merge, and through that you understand it and its story. In a way, you lose yourself and then you come out with new knowledge – you therefore change!
