technē Conflux: ‘How Like A Leaf’, ‘Performing’ Roundtable (13th September) and Estuary Workshop (18th September). In this strand of the Conflux we will consider how better knowledge of the ever changing environment of an estuarine landscape can stimulate innovative thinking on the need for adaptability. The roundtable offers an opportunity to discuss what we can learn from close observation of the ebb and flow of an estuary with its complex ecology. The focus will be on the Thames Estuary and we welcome Ben Eastop who is currently ‘working on a long-term enquiry into the social and political significance of the landscape and place mediated through art’. This will be followed by a workshop that will develop themes taken from the roundtable and offer practical, creative activities in direct response to the Thames estuary environment. Working at the low tide we will respond to the ebb and flow of the river through direct observation and through individual and collaborative material and movement-based tasks. It is recommended that students attend both events if possible. Please see the event links for further details.
