Forest Research, Roslin

The final residency involved six weeks of work at Forest Research, Roslin.  We worked with a social scientist and had access to ecosystem scientists and GIS mapping experts. We began a process of writing up what we understood from the ‘future forest’ seminar, while developing literature reviews on aesthetic philosophy for our colleagues. We also worked our way through environmental histories about Scottish forests and various conference reports and books that explored the evolving policies and management of Caledonian forests. This would inform the way we would process the work from the seminar. The work at Forest Research was the fourth circle of effort; it embraced all the content from the other three residencies and would result in a sixty page report a year later, published by Forest Research and the Landscape Research Group.
