Once one of the largest ports in England, the town of Dunwich was all but destroyed over the centuries by a series of storm surges flooding in from the sea. Numerous attempts have been made by underwater archaeological surveys to map the ruins, but still the site itself remains an enigma. For the past seven years Milo Newman’s practice has revolved around an interest in the narrative of the town’s disappearance, and the efforts made to understand it. In this new project, By the Mark, the Deep, he and fellow artist Matt Davies have collaborated in an attempt to explore the submerged remains. Together they have undertaken a series of journeys by boat into the North Sea, returning with a collection of sound recordings made through the use of hydrophones and modified contact microphones. These recordings explore the loss of the town and its memory by engaging directly with the salt water and silt burying it. 

 This event is produced in collaboration between ONOMATO and Arnolfini.

Her work focuses on wilderness and the remote and how this occupies our imagination, in particular taking the idea of glaciers and ice shelves as symbols of change and transition. The work emerges from her recent fieldwork to the Antarctic Peninsula as artist placement with the Scott Polar Research Institute and the Royal Navy, and a later trip to Svalbard in the High Arctic with The exhibition raises questions about perception of our environment and how this experience is communicated. Recording has always been an important part of Polar Science and historically most expeditions included an artist. The exhibition includes an early example of this including Edward Wilson’s watercolour studies of bergs. Stibbon’s work explores how the act of drawing continues to offer a critical method of recording and re-presenting the artist’s perspective, and engaging the audience’s imagination with the Polar environment. There is also a recent online interview /// Generation Art Young Artists on Tour 'Hands'_by_L.Lloyd 2 June – 6 September 2015 Turner Contemporary, Margate Room 13 Hareclive / Studio 30 Room 13er Lauren Lloyds 'Hands' (made at Spike Island) was one of 40 artworks from over200 young artists that was selected to feature in Generation ART: Young Artists on Tour, now open at Turner Contemporary. /// Magnum Photos Graduate Award 001_milonewman Milo Newman / Studio 81 Milo was recently selected as one of the winners of the inaugural Magnum Photos Graduate Photographers Award for work completed on his MA.

Four large 2.5 metre canvases will be painted in situ at spectacular island locations in the North, South, East and West, and left for visitors and residents to enjoy. The paintings will encourage people to explore the beauty and diversity of the Anglesey landscape, enjoy being outside and provide a creative and thought-provoking take on each side of the spectacular island. Castle, ocean, island, mountain and historical views will all be captured on canvas. When complete, the giant works of art will be lifted onto bespoke rusted steel easels and left in the landscape, on or near the Anglesey Coastal Path in the very spot they were painted. The creations will be left exposed to the elements until October 2015. Whilst they have been carefully designed to withstand the inevitable rigours of storms and weathering, as the paintings are immersed in the landscape they will intentionally transform in character as the light and weather changes around them. Using Richard's photography, the project has been covered by The Times, The Sunday Times, Telegraph, Independent, Coast Magazine, BBC and ITV. Anthony wrote and performed the four piano pieces for the film which had unrestricted access throughout the project.
