Journey Pause Reflect Respond Connect

somewhere-nowhere projects highlight remarkable environmental spaces and the human stories that are linked with them. Some of our projects take place over an extended period of time so that we can explore a place, journey to it repeatedly, and get to know it and the people connected with it in different weathers, seasons and moods.

We bring together writing, photography and video, and some of our work involves interventions in the land in the form of visual art, kinetic poetry, or random acts of beauty. Each project feeds into new websites, articles and exhibitions.

Typically, a spark of curiosity or a pressing question draws us to develop an idea and seek out people whose knowledge and passion can deepen our own understanding and appreciation of a place. We work slowly and attentively to develop programmes that allow us to immerse ourselves in a specific location and engage others in the project.
