The Gift in the Beaver

Figure 1:  A beaver on display at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, Glasgow, Scotland. Gift giving may be the most basic form of exchange, though hardly simple.

Landscaping with Beavers

Arriving“The more beavery the landscape is, the harder it is to find them.” This is what Laura Ogden, an environmental anthropologist from the US told us on our first evening in Bamff in Perthshire as we took an evening walk around the land to try to spot some beavers. An interdisciplinary group of ten researchers including artists, cultural geographers, and anthropologists visited the estate for four days to explore “landscaping with beavers”, and the possibility of multispecies collaboration.…See More

Landscaping with Beavers

We have just returned from a wild weekend at the Bamff beaver project in Perthshire.

The Ramsay family, who own the estate, are key players in current debates about beaver reintroduction in Scotland. Over three days at Bamff we learned about the beavers and their landscape, and participated in a set of creative experiments in landscaping…See More

Reflections on our latest visit to Knepp

Posted by David Overend on October 29, 2018 at 15:30 0 Comments

On 14th– 17th September 2018, I returned to Knepp Castle Estate for a third time with Jamie Lorimer, along with three new visitors: Sofie Narbed, Jenny Swingler and Scott Twynholm. On previous trips we had scoped out, explored and experimented with this complicated site; learning to read, interpret and work with the wild processes and inhabitants of the Wildland Project (Overend and Lorimer 2018). This time, we planned to make something: to create a text that…
