A collaborative project, based on 50yrs of observations by polymath, art critic & pioneer of environmentalism, John Ruskin. Embracing a multidisciplinary practice, incorporating b&w photography taken from a single window, overlaid with pictures of paintings in the tradition of the Pictorialist Movement into a single body of work. Ruskin warned of the approaching "storm clouds", Man poisoning the land, sky, a premonition of a decaying world. By combining these two aesthetics, confusing & challenging viewers to see beyond the objective, the obvious, to arrive at the subjective landscape
