Fairbourne 

Fairbourne is a series of video installations and still images set in a small seaside village in North Wales located between  Snowdonia National Park and Barmouth Bay. 

The village is set to be fully  submerged  by the sea due to rising sea levels caused by global warming, labelling the residents as ‘Britain’s  first climate refugees’.  

The body of work focuses on humanity and our connection to the natural world, while touching upon themes of  Phenomenology, The Sublime and our current  environmental epoch of the Anthropocene.
