This work was made during the residency program at the Sidney Nolan Trust in The Rodd near Presteigne, England. I spent two weeks walking intensively in a rich natural environment which had more animals and insects than people. My process started with sensory ethnographic research and writing about the landscape of The Rodd.

I investigated subjective experiences of walking and observe a process of how physical sense, spoken word, and communication with local people affects my understanding of the geography. I translated my sensory experiences and memories into writing and video making.
