Description: Ways of being seen explores landscapes held in tension by a 100ft monument in the Scottish Northeast Highlands. The monument to the First Duke of Sutherland commemorates a man who presided over one of the most contested Highland Clearances of the nineteenth century. During this time populations were forcibly displaced to make way for sheep farming and new infrastructures were inscribed across the landscape.
The mappings and model for the Ways of being seen project were exhibited in The Landscapists Exhibition.
Ed co-edited Landscape Citizenships with Tim Waterman and Jane Hutton, following the eponymous symposium at Conway Hall in 2018.
Ed was interviewed by Silvia Gullino for the Drivers of Change series of podcasts.
The Landscapists exhibition includes inventive landscape works by leading artists, designers, and researchers, including: Harry Bix; Luis Callejas and Charlotte Hansson; Emma Colthurst; James Corner; Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman; Drawing Architecture Studio; Larissa Fassler; Alexis Liu; Tiago Torres‐Campos; SCAPE; and Ed Wall.
In April Ed was appointed a Design Council Expert, joining a diverse, multi-disciplinary community from across the UK, set to address major social, environmental, and economic challenges.
Ed was invited by Prof. Tom Jeffries to join a Digital Landscapes Roundtable at Queen’s University Belfast.
In 2020 Ed was interviewed by Professor Ye Yu at the Beijing Forestry University for an article in Landscape Architecture Journal (China). See the full interview here.
