A Critical Forest Art Practice. | Imagining Natural Scotland

Interesting to link with previous article on degeneration/regeneration of Highland landscapes.

The iconic Caledonian forest is a remnant ecosystem. Composed of vibrant living matter it has its own agency and significant generative and reproductive power. Culturally it is an idea lost in time that lacks presence and visibility today.

 

As part of their Imagining Natural Scotland project, Tim Collins and Reiko Goto’ s inquiry leads to a set of questions:

How do we contribute to thepotential for a tree or forest community to prosper in an age of environmental change?

Can we reveal empathic interrelationship between people and trees in urban and rural settings?

Can we work with others to embody ideas or experiences that effect or reshape the perception and normative value of extraordinary living things.
