Stanton Drew stone circle and cove 3D collage

Sometimes when its dark I imagine the sites I have visited in that same darkness. I imagine myself exploring, and absorbing the atmosphere.

A while ago I found an incredible book, Memoirs of Historical and Topographical Bristol and its Neighbourhood by the Rev Samuel Sayer (published in threee editions between 1821-3), in Bristol Central Library, and wrote a blog entry about it. The plate illustrations were so beautiful, that I photocopied a few before I returned the book. Amongst them were depictions of the individual stones which form Stoney Littleton stone circle and cove. I visited this site in December 2016, you can read the blog entry here and hear the sound-sketch here.

A couple of nights ago I pulled out that photocopy and decided to make a 3d collage drawing with it, to be lit by a cold ‘moon’ like torch light. I took some photographs, here are the results. In a way I felt I was somehow visiting the site, as my attention shrank in size, lying on the floor, looking up at the silent stones casting shadows and reflections.
