Living Landscapes, Aberystwyth

Cathy gave a joint paper with Dr. Deirdre Heddon to a conference on ‘Living Landscapes’, University of Aberystwyth, June 18-22. This paper is a result of our joint research into women walking artists and is entitled: ‘Walking Women: An Imaginary Walk to Talk About Women Walking’.

Cathy also contributed to a pre-conference walk led by Stephen Hodge and Simon Persighetti, entitled ‘Longshore Drift’. Hodge and Persighetti asked Cathy and Phil Smith to build a castle out of found materials on the end of the Sarn between Borth and Aberystwyth. This sarn, although a geological feature, is supposed to be the remains of a wall to a lost kingdom, evidenced in the nearby submerged forest.
