This 2 week residency was supported by OIKA and Eco Museum Zagori, a group developed by scientist Dr Rich Blundell alongside international artists. The group discusses and responds to matters concerning ecological intelligence from a scientific and arts perspective. The residency took place in the remote mountainous village of Elafotopos in Zagori in Northern Greece. Working alongside artists Ida Larsen, Vicky Vergou and Geert Vermiere we had focused time to walk, contemplate time, space and place. The time together resulted in a digital book of the artists time here.

Yarn and wool from the local sheep, which triggered research concerning human responses and assumptions concerning sheep.
Finding our way "home" small pieces of wool were located on trees and bushes in the mountains to guide visitors back to the residency.
