Land Matter Media will connect the forest at Hooke Park with a wider Dorset context, creating a rich tapestry of themes and ideas that weave the local agricultural, extractive and military landscapes together. Making use of the new Field Station – an outdoor study, research and event space set deep within the Hooke Park woodland – this residential programme focuses on audio-visual fieldwork, site-specific interventions and media excursions into landscape.
The programme will include talks, film screenings, discussions and excursions, as well as practical workshop sessions that encourage a hands-on attitude among our participants; we will be making work to explore ideas. Students will develop critical, land-based audio-visual work that engages and contextualises the forest at Hooke Park within a wider local and global context. Our work will culminate in a site-specific multimedia installation, screening and event at the Hooke Park Field Station.
