Archaeology Project

After visiting an exhibition on archaeology in Cardiff Museum and seeing some watercolour paintings of a recently uncovered mayan temple covered in foliage, I became interested in how the passing of time affects things, particularly when plants are involved. I’ll be looking into the aesthetics of overgrown abandoned castles and how plants affect their surroundings after a long time has passed. The combination of rock and stone with greenery appeals to me as it shows that life goes on and is a sign of nature taking things back.

I will visit Cardiff Castle to gather photos of my own, and i will experiment with planting fast growing plants among rocks, and also with ceramics.
