During the residency I will be keeping a diary on the RFM Gallery blog as well as on my own blog. I'll scan in the sketches, photographs and notes that will be used to make the body of work to be exhibited in February.
In May this year I ran a workshop as a summary of a residency placement on the MA course at UCA Maidstone. The workshop and seminar aimed to dissect the reason for using a 3D scanner and attempt to replicate the way in which is reads information. We set ourselves a series of experiments which we had to carry out on various objects in order to gather as much information about them as possible.

I have set myself a similar task for this residency. By carrying out as series of experiments I would like to find out as much as I can about a patch (the same size as the gallery 10 x 4m) on Spaunton Moor. The ambition being to relay this information in the space, replicating the feeling of being on the Moor - obviously not possible! But in attempting to do so I hope to make a body of work that goes some way to explaining the charged (which is why I have chosen the title Dipole) and often overwhelming sensation of being on the Moor as well as analysing why we (many of us anyway) have the need to dissect and understand the space around and underneath us.
