Since September 2011 I have been working as the Associate Artist for a project sponsored by Durham University's Institute of Advanced Studies, 'New Storylines for Living with Environmental Change'. This work is now on display at the Botanic Garden until 31st August.

The project has been tremendously inspiring and challenging for me, as an artist, and also as a citizen with concern for our planet. It has highlighted the urgency of facing the issues of climate change and the need for a change of lifestyle, and also the potential risks in geo-engineering the climate.
The images below are from the artworks I created during the project, and some of the pages in the booklet that goes with the exhibition. If you click on them they enlarge so that they can be read.
