Critical Camp # 5 – 'Plotting a path: The utility of the romantic'
Artists have always celebrated the landscape as a source of inspiration, aesthetic pleasure, purpose and meaning. The land is however, also a resource for production, extraction, and utilization by human industry on both a personal and global scale. How are these two related? Can art itself help to reconcile the aesthetic experience of the land and its productive reality? 

This Critical Camp explores the meaning of the site-specific in art, what being in a landscape might mean, and how the different practices including contemplation, walking, digging and utilising, change our relationship to the ground that we stand on and the views that we take in.

Speakers: Bram Thomas Arnold - Artist, pedestrian and writer based in Cornwall. Bram is currently finishing a PhD at Falmouth University concerned with autoethnographic and ecological approaches to place, memory, landscape and language.
