Both Simon Callery & Ryder have been commissioned by Big Picture for the ExLab project to engage in research relating to the geology of Dorset, alongside Mat Chivers, Proboscis and Zachary Eastwood Bloom.
Simon Ryder is sharing his findings about Portland regularly on his blog, as he harvests experiences and stories – objects and histories – collating a very unique response to a very unique location. Definitely worth following…….
Meanwhile, up in Sherborne, Simon Callery is considering the local geology underfoot – how it changes as one travels towards the coast. Parallel to conducting his ExLab research, he is also showing work in Budapest.
