Torbay

This weekend I went on my first geological field trip in Torbay, Devon. Our guide was Hazel Gibson, a geologist based at Plymouth university, who also has a blog here: https://mypatchworkplanet.wordpress.com/.

kingdom of moss

These are some of the images from an ongoing research into capturing tactile qualities in moving image.
