Collaborating with farmers, their animals and the landscape is the basis of the Contemporary Pastoralism project. The relationships within the farm community, from the tradespeople who come in to care for the animals, to the conversations had while leaning on the fence gate at the end of a long day are what sustain the ideas for the sculpture.
