Hollywood forest, IE

------ "Out beyond ideas, there is a forest...... meet me there." I make and research new ideas of eco-social well-being and sustainability through artistic practice. I undertook an arts practice-theory PhD on a guiding theory-method framework for long-term eco-social art practices. This PhD referred to how my creative practice reflected and directed the transformation of small conifer plantation, Hollywood forest, toward continuous cover forestry, see my blog. I also have experience in biological research and policy development. Somehow an eco-social art practice allows me to connect and move across these various strands to create new agency for myself and my community.
