Focusing on the themes of community/biodiversity we each documented through mapping how humans have impacted our surroundings. We housed our attention to the abandoned, derelict Clune Park Estate in Port Glasgow to document how humans have impacted that area in regards to their social patterns, destructive nature and the biodiversity that will reclaim the space once the human involvement has deteriorated. We worked individually under one theme to showcase our collaborative exhibition of Clune Park Estate through installations, textiles and sculptures of collected materials such as physical human materials, recordings of video and sound and research from our gatherings.
