The Ranch 18 Summer Session catalogue : Cooking the Landscape

Our Summer Session 2018 catalogue is now ready for printing. Thank you everyone for their contributions, films (slow and fast), patient editing checks and careful selection from a wealth of images and films to put this year's 'proof' of the 'cooking' going on in the landscape this year. Links for the filmic are in the catalogue pages.

We are getting ready to mark our 10th anniversary next year 2019. We hope to exhibit, make a book, invite past participants to contribute...go down to the pub for a pint at least.

For a printed copy please go here.

With best wishes, Kristina & co.

the LT Ranch Summer Session 2017 Catalogue

the LT Summer Session 2017: studios in the landscape

This year's summer session was punctuated by a multitude of daily weather patterns that kept the workspaces and makers trotting around the landscape.
Carrier boxes of tools and materials, mobile collections of artefacts moved from location to location, carpets of plastic sheets appeared and disappeared as did some well intentioned tent covers. As rainbows passed and deposited gold pots in far away horizons, the skies dispersed the colour into weighty blankets of tones in cyclical rotation.
The following images are a collection of these temporal studio spaces in the Ranch landscape this year, paradoxically mostly captured during sunny spells. These craftspaces document early iterations and experimentation of projects.
The catalogue is a work in progress at the moment, where projects will be presented by the makers themselves. These temporary studios may appear, but then may remain fleeting glimpses of processes of behind the scenes fragments.
The cinematic moments will be have links in the catalogue, and we hope to launch this year's events at the UAL MA ISD Graduation Show in early Sept 2017.
