I consider the landscape as a large scale sculpture slowly shaped by a community over a vast period of time and so it acts as a receptacle of lives and memories. The term ‘palimpsest’ refers to the erasure of text from paper and the re-use of it, similar to the way creating new paths, fields and woods re-write old histories across a landscape.
