Gwenan Davies AIR 2013

Means of escape

For Gwenan, the works for the Outlandia residency came through a short period studying the town of Fort William and its visitors looking to experience the nature of the area through the pre-arranged tourist facilities available. Having spent a few days in the town itself and climbing to her residency studio in Glen Nevis, she reflected on the means that people escape to the 'wild'. The resulting works are a series of photographs that highlight the problematic contradictions between the human desire to relate to nature and modern day commercial tourism.

  1. Has education lost its way? The future success of any society is built into its educational system. If we look at the original intent of education, have we lost our way? This article takes a brutally blunt view of education's intention and steps to put it back on track. Ultimately, it is a strategy for creating a society of leaders and thinkers.http://www.careerpanth.xyz/
