It is not down in any map; true places never are

The current conversation around global warming has encouraged a politicised and loaded representation of nature.

The body of work explores, and reflects on how humanity is presently engaging with the natural environment.

Martyn employs the process of bricolage, ‘something constructed from a diverse range of things’, to bring together research and imagery, concerning themes of evolution, weather patterns, core samples, colonialism, and ‘zoochosis’, amongst others, to create narrative spaces that unpack his own thoughts and observations surrounding humanity’s relationship with nature.
