For the past 10 years, recording and commenting on the weather has been part of Morfydd Ransom-Hall’s daily routine. The visiting of prehistoric sites was part of their childhood. These activities, with their close relationship to the cycle of the moon and yearly passage of the sun, gave rise to the key question that informs Ransom-Hall’s practice: whether and how the lunar cycle influences the weather.
Phases: an exploration of moon and weather shows work from this ongoing research.
“My research focuses on the Anthropocene. This investigation results in a practice which interrogates climate and weather, capturing the interaction between the natural world and human intervention. The continuous cycle of the seasons and the dynamics of climate and weather assert their own pressures. These variables impact upon our own lives; we remain at the mercy of climatic events. I monitor the cycle and rhythm of the seasons. Through this continuous recording and researching, I interrogate the uncertainty of these influences and their effect upon the landscape.
