Group One - A Road to Nowhere 

 A Road to Nowhere - Iulia Fratila, Ben Hayes, Deng Al

A Road to Nowhere” raises questions about limits and thresholds that we have encountered while photographing, recording and scanning at Kielder.

Making use of the information we have gathered from the different parts of the site we fabricated a new landscape, which tells the story of our own, subjective journey. In this new reality we find old roads which have been swallowed by the man-made lake, landmark trees merging with the mathematical grid of the plantation and the banks of Kielder Water repositioned. On the acoustic level we have used actual recordings of our wanders; in this way we unveil the thresholds between different materials, rhythm, atmosphere and personal perception.
