Laura Harrington: Layerscape (peat bogs) ‹ Events & Exhibitions ‹ 2012 ‹ Programme ‹ AV Festival

This peatlands walk leads to a bothy screening of the film Layerscape, created collaboratively by Harrington with Sarah Bouttell, Debbie Bower and sound artist Lee Patterson. Layerscape is a slow, immersive journey filmed over a year and inspired by the decomposition and layering of vegetation over thousands of years. The film explores vast and different peatlands from the uplands and blanket bogs of Allendale and Killhope to the ancient border mires in Kielder forest, observing the shifting and passing of time and viewing the power of nature to heal itself in multiple ways. Developed in collaboration with The North Pennines AONB Partnership.via
