‘Beacons’ is an immersive, cyclic narrative that was developed through Maisie’s MA investigation into the complex and multifacited discourse surrounding Rewilding in the Welsh uplands. Rewilding is often seen as being radical and controversial on the one hand, and over-glamorised on the other, with calls for the reintroduction of wolves, wild boar, beaver and lynx frequently making the headlines.
This wordless, looped narrative prompts us to reconsider both our ownership of and relationship to the Brecon Beacons; a territory that has been tamed for human need. The animation demonstrates how ecosystems are interconnected and asks us to rethink our position on the earth by becoming stewards of this landscape and living in harmony with it.
