Abstract

For Tim Ingold, who developed the idea, the notion of ‘taskscape’ distinguishes the convergence of landscape and time with how human and non-human action within the various scales of time – from the momentary and personal to the geological, cyclical, and historical – materialize in the land.

Whilst in the same taskscape as each other the slow pace of encountering the world, both individually and collectively, allows time and space to affect thinking, reflection and potential actions, echoing shared experiences and evolving knowledge.

This paper examines how the reverberations of an artist’s critical thinking and deep spaces for reflection can develop a unique form of expression when working in extended engagement with the place she inhabits, fused with the experiences and relationships between various animate and inanimate agents participating in the same process of place making.
