In 2012, The Oxford Junior Dictionary had a number of ‘nature’ words removed, including Bluebell, Otter, Oyster, Acorn, Hazel, Leopard and Willow. Many words to describe the natural world were replaced by technological words such as blog, answerphone and wifi. This inspired a number of paintings, which were included in ‘Landmarks’, an installation piece performed by myself and Rufus Mufasa at Inkspot Cardiff as part of the Made in Roath Festival, and at the Pen and Wig in Newport, for Maindee Library.
