'The Gathering Ground' forms a personal investigation studying the rise of independence in my homeland Wales, and its historical connection to water. Wales has three main water supplies that supply water to across the border. The building of these reservoirs caused damage to society and culture in Wales, as homes and communities were lost to gather water for another nation. Through materiality, process and contemplation, these works focus on the significance of that water.

How has this water affected the land in the past?

How will it affect Wales in the future?
