(2019- present) Whilst the British countryside has been regarded as a retreat for many its function and definition has bowed. Along our border lands two coexisting identities can be found, creating a space which is not easily defined. Formerly attributed to the hardships of industrial closure the documented landscape sits alongside traditional pastoral visions associated with Britain. The divide is a ‘trunk’ road which joins England and Wales, whilst forming an unofficial border between rural and industrial South Wales. Its creation has been continually developed since the early 00’s and has seen further development with the help of European funding. In broad terms, the project can be seen as an investigation to national/cultural identity and a quickly changing landscape.
