August - Lundy Island - Walking the Paths

Found materials from the paths, printed on site.

There are 15km of paths on the island and I have walked all of them many times over the years. I always enjoy looking at what is on the paths. On Lundy it is largely made up of a wide variety of animal remnants, mostly droppings and corpses at varying stages of decay, feathers, hair, wool and plants. There is life too with occasional beetles scurrying across the tracks and fleeing rabbits, very strong smelling goats and wild Soay sheep.

I walked the paths again this year and every 100 paces I printed something from the ground. I recorded where I found it and what it was. One of my favourites was a sheep's ear partially decayed with its identification tag still on it. The rabbit shit prints were good too.

I made 90 mini prints which I will display together in some way..... still pondering on this.
