Dundee artist Ken Bambury  just  started masters course Art Society and publics, looking forward to meeting and seeing new fellow students and their work, possibilities I hope for collaborating as i have ideas about collaboratively making very large scale  land art work.

My art now is aligning itself with a more land art feel hence my interest in making and the revival of traditional skills I am now researching ancient  fire lighting techniques, metal forging, and stone balancing.

28/01/2018   My practice is still developing, now i am looking at the whole experience of a journey into wild spaces, to produce art work and using this as a way to facilitate people  in  engaging with  nature.  To date i have been researching an area which has been familiar to me for many years, it is the cairngorm national park in particular corrie fee area it is a renowned international, site of scientific interest, due to its unique geology and there for the many rare sub arctic alpine plants in the area. at this stage i feel this will undoubtedly lead to some kind of botanic art. unfortunately i cant get out there due to weather conditions and the amount of snow to observe these plants.|so i wil content myself with looking through  university archives of this area as i believe the university had a field hut in the area.
