Place and places are a vital component to activating and accessing histories, narratives, experiences, identities and meanings. These readings of place and places provide contexts for the creation of social values, communities, identities and new ways of thinking about conservation and landscape values. Hence spirit of place and sense of place are fundamental to our existence and relationship with the world around us and lie at the heart of my research and practice

地点和场所是激活和获取历史、叙事、经验、身份和意义的重要组成部分。这些对地方和场所的解读为创造社会价值、社区、身份认同以及对保护和景观价值的新思维方式提供背景环境。因此,地方精神和地方意识是我们生存的根本,是我们与周围世界关系的根本,也是我研究和实践的核心。。

 

I am interested in how landscape and locations become important to us - how places we have never lived in before become our homes and how we create attachments and become rooted to a place. The North Norfolk coast holds many stories which inform a sense of place but perhaps more importantly speak of humanity’s relationship between the land and the sea. When considering sea-level rise, this quiet stretch of coast holds stories of global significance.

我感兴趣的是风景和地点如何成为我们的重要组成部分—我们从未居住过的地方如何成为我们的家,我们如何对一个地方产生依恋并扎根于此。北诺福克(The North Norfolk)海岸拥有许多故事,它们传达了一种地方感,但也许更重要的是讲述了人类与陆地和海洋之间的关系。当考虑到海平面上升时,这片宁静的海岸线蕴含着具有全球意义的故事。
