When a sense of place or home is lost through social or environmental change we often attempt to make tangible what is missing and absent. In order to come to terms with this loss, we romanticise what has been left behind because it is no longer physically tangible.

The activity of borrowing and interpreting images from the natural world – whether mediated or wild – is an ages-old process, one which is deeply etched in the human psyche and memory and belies a seemingly insatiable human need for associations with nature.

David Kavanagh (Cork) ‘Cork Area Strategic Plan 2020 – 20200, fig.1’ Ink on lokta paper;

Science is constantly opening up new frontiers of knowledge, but ignorance expands in tandem, it often seems that every new discovery gives rise to a number of new questions. This results in an enormous playing field of theory and counter theory, mystery and revelation.

Colette Lewis (Cork) 'PostCar D’Art' Photography printed postcards & stand;

The Harbour was experienced as a natural extension, bridging communities across the water. In this era of the car it is considered more of a barrier separating and dividing communities. I’ve created a collection of ‘greeting postcards’ which function as ‘views’ to engage communities that inhabit the Harbour.
